We Rely On Your Support!

Making a donation to AJR is a powerful way to become a part of the future of pluralistic Jewish life. All gifts help to maintain and enhance the community of learning that is the hallmark of the Academy, and makes it possible for AJR to reach the larger Jewish community.

Why is your gift so important?
Gifts to AJR have an immediate impact on our students. Tuition and fees fund only 70% of our operating expenses. AJR relies on the support of our alumni, students, families and friends to supplement the remaining costs. Academy students rely on the generosity of those who have gone before them.

What does your gift support?
Our Master of Arts, Rabbinical and Cantorial Programs educate future rabbis, cantors and Jewish leaders with the tools to serve the contemporary Jewish community. Our alumni serve throughout the United States and abroad as clergy and professionals in congregational, educational, and communal settings.

How can I make a difference?
You can make a difference by supporting AJR with cash contributions, stock, matching gifts and planned giving.
