Institute for Jewish Education: New Developments


A message from from Nathan J. Robfogel, Board Chair, and Hollis S. Budd, Executive Director

Today, after a thorough review, and in consideration of divergent interests among the partners for the proposed campus for Jewish education, the Board of Trustees of the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation decided not to proceed with plans to erect a building to house three Jewish day schools.

The Farash Institute for Jewish Education will continue to operate and focus on lifelong Jewish learning. The Institute will serve as an entity for all types of Jewish educational opportunities—formal, informal, cultural, and religious in the greater Rochester area—and will promote mutual respect for the diversity of Jewish life and learning.​
