To me, education is the foundation of Judaism; the religion, our people, the community, the culture, and without it, I don’t think we’d know who we are as a people and as a religion.

To me, a builder provides support, creates the underpinnings so that something can move into the future. A builder can also help broaden something that already exists. Being a Builder of Jewish education is all about the future, providing support for the next generation. The way I see it, if we don’t have Jews that are educated, we’re not going to have Jews, period.
