Building Jewish Education Across Los Angeles

BJE Builders

Meet our community's Builders of Jewish Education:

Gary Weisserman, Head of School Milken Community Schools
BJE Builders

Being a Builder of Jewish education means preparing our young people to embrace both tradition and modernity. It means creating educational programs that help kids think well, belong to something greater than themselves, and take positive action – now, and in the future.

To me, being a Builder is really about providing people with the building blocks and the tools to go out into the community and make an impression. Hopefully, the work I do helps make young people want to be Jewish.

My family was always involved in different ways in the Jewish community. My grandfather – my saba – is a BJE board member and past president, and always talked about BJE and other Jewish organizations when I was growing up. I didn’t know what it meant then, but I knew my family was involved. I joined USY in high school and especially liked the social action programs.
