Dear YULA Parents,
We write to you today as proud partners of Teach CA Coalition – a subsidiary of the Orthodox Union. Teach Coalition, founded in 2013, has a vast network of community leaders, parents and lawmakers across the country who advocate for equitable government funding for nonpublic schools. Currently, more than 500 Day-Schools and Yeshivot receive government funding through Teach Coalition efforts.
Specifically, Teach CA has been lobbying on behalf of our local Jewish Day Schools over the last two years. Teach CA works with our local Federation, Catholic groups and other groups to make sure we receive the funds we need to stay strong.
Currently, Teach CA is working to ensure that Jewish Day Schools receive the maximum benefit from all the various State and Federal funds available as a result of COVID-19.
In addition to SBA Loans, there are three different sources of COVID-19 relief that currently exist or that will require sustained and strategic advocacy efforts by our community to secure for our schools:
