|Students find the perfect Jewish education for free|
All around the world, parents and Jewish teens seek to balance the need for an affordable quality education and the desire for Jewish expression. And Jewish parents look for ways to provide their children with a solid Jewish identity and a quality education.
For many, the cost of fulltime Jewish education is prohibitive, yet a public-school education comes at the expense of the social discomfort. For many families, Jewish education is relegated to bar/bat mitzvah lessons, with the need for a solid academic foundation taking priority. To develop and maintain a strong sense of Jewish identity becomes a challenge for many teens and young adults.
Looking beyond the traditional options can hold the answer to all their needs. For some 1,600 Jewish students, the solution to this ever-common dilemma has an address. Though radical, these families have decided to invest in a non-traditional way, giving their children the adventure of a lifetime and sending them to high-school boarding programmes in Israel.
For Reeka Umardekar, of Mumbai, and hundreds of her Jewish peers enrolled in Naale Elite Academy’s 25 schools, they found the perfect fit. Naale’s programmes provide both an affordable education and great Jewish atmosphere. The tracks offer independent teens in 9th through 12th grade a top-notch Jewish education with a full scholarship.Please login or register to see the full article
