Schechter schools partnering with Jewish Montessori

The Conservative movement’s Schechter Day School Network and the Jewish Montessori Society have announced a strategic partnership.

Under the new arrangement, the two Jewish day school associations will share some programming and resources.

While the number of Schechter schools has decreased in the past decade, the Jewish Montessori sector is growing. More than 20 new programs have opened since 2004, many as tracks within existing day schools.

Founded in 1965, the Schechter Day School Network represents 43 schools in North America. JMS was formed in 2011 and has 41 member schools. — jta
