What is the Va'ad Horim?

The Va'ad Horim (Va'ad) is you! JCDS has a Va'ad to bring together the amazing families that make up our community, to learn, to celebrate, to serve the community and to support the faculty and staff to whom we entrust our children's education.

The Va'ad Horim is all of us! Our mission is to strengthen and build the school's parent community; to integrate new families into life at JCDS; to show our appreciation for faculty and staff; and to create a welcoming and supportive community. We accomplish this by facilitating various forms of programming and teacher recognition throughout the year. We are an all-volunteer organization, with a role for every family.
The Va'ad coordinates room parents for each class, in-school challah delivery, teacher appreciation 'moments,' parent meet-ups and events, Chesed committee, and family programming activities. We hope you will volunteer in a way that fits your interests and your schedule.

We are excited to introduce the 2020-2021 Va'ad Leadership:

Deb Gaffin & Beth Badik, Va'ad Horim Co-Chairs
Dave Cutler, Va'ad Horim Communications
Ellen Krause-Grosman, Va'ad Horim Treasurer
Dalit Ballen Horn & Nichole Argo Ben Itzhak, Programming Co-chairs

The Va'ad Horim is what you want it to be! JCDS' greatest resource is our families. It takes all of us to build the community together and our hope is that every parent finds a meaningful way to become part of our volunteer community. Share your great ideas, and then roll up your sleeves and let's make it happen!

We look forward growing our community TOGETHER!
