I am constantly inspired by the countless hours and hard work that our amazing teachers, staff, and admin team put in every day. This school is a special place and the team has not only delivered on providing an amazing educational experience for the kids but they have made everyone in the community feel relevant and connected. Every dollar donated allows the school to continue to fulfill our mission which is even more critical now as COVID has impacted everyone in different ways. Wornick JDS has redefined what it means to be a community Jewish Day School and everyone has really stepped up to support each other when we needed it the most. Larry Pascal, Parent and Board Chair

I give to Wornick because teaching the next generation to love and celebrate Jewish life is important to me. I give to support the success of the school that has been a second home to my family, and I give because I am blessed to be a part of this community. In these dark days, Wornick faculty and staff have provided safety, educational excellence, and emotional support to our children. For this mitzvah, I will always be grateful and in gratitude, I will continue to give to help Wornick remain a strong and financially sustainable organization. Dr. Heather Cahan, Parent
