Grandparents & Special Friends

At Schechter, we appreciate the vital role that grandparents and special friends play in our students’ lives and our school community. This page is dedicated to celebrating your involvement and providing you with information about how you can stay connected with us.

At Schechter, families become active participants in a dynamic community that thrives on meaningful connections. From celebrating grade-level milestones to engaging in enriching learning opportunities, from joining hands for meaningful social action programs to attending Shabbat dinners and social gatherings, Schechter is a place where families grow and thrive together.

Below are some of the ways you can stay connected and support school life.

Special Events:

Every year, we offer special programming in person and virtually on a range of topics, many specifically for grandparents. We will post events on this page, and hope you will join us.

Yom Orchim (Day of Welcoming Guests)

Every November, grandparents and special friends are invited for Yom Orchim, a day of welcoming guests. This is an opportunity for you to visit our school, interact with your grandchildren, and experience a day in the life of a Schechter student. Yom Orchim is a cherished tradition that we look forward to sharing with you.

Giving Opportunities:

There are so many ways that grandparents can contribute to the life of our school, including donating to our annual Schechter fund, purchasing tributes, sponsoring a day of learning, or leaving a bequest or legacy gift. Click here to learn more about our many ways to support Schechter.
