24 seeking Jewish continuity by their affiliation with day schools. The community day schools are inclusive institutions not associated with a particular Jewish denominational movement. They provide a pluralistic setting for Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Judaism that appeals to growing numbers of families. Children from the three branches of Judaism study and play together while each retains his/her own identity. The schools strive to emphasize what we have in common rather than what separates us. Funding is always a major concern. Fortunately, the United Jewish Federations recognize the need for Jewish day schools. In many communities, their financial commitment is one of the pillars of the financial structure of these institutions. We are blessed in Tidewater with an understanding and supportive relationship.
