With the cost of yeshiva tuition skyrocketing, doubling every 10 years, and schools struggling just to meet payroll, it’s become very clear that our current system is collapsing.
Even well-to-do families are staggering under the burden of multiple tuitions.
Jeff Kirschblum, a consultant in Monsey, shares with us his vision for the future of yeshiva funding. His plan – The Jewish Educational Endowment Fund, or JEEF – calls for the establishment of endowment funds that are earmarked exclusively for reducing the burden of tuition. The capital for these funds, he claims, can easily come from wealthy secular Jews who will be much more inclined to contribute to a lasting legacy of an endowment fund.
The only question is – will schools buy into the plan?
