Dear Kadimah Supporter:

What a difference two years makes.

Just 20 months ago, the entire world was upended by a fast-spreading viral pandemic that fundamentally altered our lives, forcing all of us to discover new ways to work, learn, worship and communicate.

The Kadimah Scholars Program faced the same challenge to pivot on a dime – and we did so efficiently and effectively, just six months after we began our innovative partnership at The Park School of Buffalo. Indeed, when it came to a radical transformation, we had a head start – because we had already done it, by creating a revolutionary new concept of Jewish day school education that brought our 60-year-old Kadimah together with the century-old Park.

Since then, we have extended our reach and doubled our enrollment, from 19 Scholars in grades K-9 when we started, to 37 from pre-K to 11th grade this year. We have two classrooms for Kadimah classes, with Hebrew adorning the walls. We once again had a sukkah on campus, celebrated Hanukkah together, and look forward to even more.

The legacy of Kadimah continues. We are working harder than ever, united in our determination to ensure that Jewish education remains strong in Buffalo. But we need your help to ensure it can succeed and be affordable to all.

Your gift directly supports the multifaceted program we have built, from online learning experiences with Israel to holiday programs. More importantly, your gift helps to provide scholarships so that our community’s children can always get a Jewish education. Finally, your generous donation makes you a hero to a child, and a leader of our community. It takes a village to educate a child. And you are part of our village.

Please help us to renew our commitment to our community’s future, by supporting Kadimah in our annual campaign, and supporting the education of our Jewish youth.

Thank you for your faith in us, your continued dedication to the community, and your hope for the next generation.

We want to acknowledge that this video was possible thanks to a grant from the Buffalo Jewish federation along with the Yom Haatzmaut lunch and another collaboration project between 5-10 grade students and seniors in our community.

This video shows the collaboration we have in Park between Kadimah Scholars’ students and the Park community. This project was possible thanks to the great support and enthusiasm of students and staff who put their time and effort into it.

We hope you enjoy it!
