As part of its commitment to transparency and transformation in Jewish education, Lamplighters Yeshivah is releasing its second Annual Financial Report.
Last year, the school became the first ever in Crown Heights to open its books to the public, showing exactly how its money comes and goes.
Lamplighters Yeshivah is a Chabad preschool, elementary and middle school in the center of Crown Heights. It employs Chassidic teaching, Montessori methodology and behavioral science to customize the educational environment for each child.
“Transparency and transformation go hand in hand,” explains Yocheved Sidof, executive director of the school and annual presenter of the financial report to the parent body. “The groundbreaking innovations we’ve achieved thus far, with Hashem’s help, in the classroom are all due to the culture of transparency we foster among our educational staff, and now infinitely more so through the Visible Classroom technology we are developing. The Annual Financial Report is merely another manifestation of that culture in the administrative arm of the school. Trust between school and stakeholders—parents, community, supporters—is everything, and trust can only exist where there is openness and honesty.”
The report is being released in lead up to Lamplighters’ annual Charidy campaign on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 21-22, with a goal of raising $360,000 within 30 hours. Every dollar contributed during the campaign will be quadrupled by matching donors.
