About Us

 
 
 

 

Mandel JDS - Cleveland’s only Jewish community day school, embracing a wide spectrum of the community in terms of perspective and affiliation while celebrating the richness of pluralism and the strength of diversity.

We believe that a community school is one in which Jewish students from all backgrounds and perspectives can learn from each other and celebrate our commonalities while understanding and appreciating our differences.

ABOUT OUR FOUNDING NAME AND HISTORY

Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School was originally named after Shmuel Yosef Agnon, the first Israeli to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1966. S.Y. Agnon saw himself as straddling Jewish tradition and modern culture. He was firmly rooted in both worlds, just as we are here.

On August 25, 2015 our school became Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School, in appreciation of a generous gift and vote of confidence from the Joseph and Florence Mandel Family Foundation.

Joseph & Florence Mandel Jewish Day School, a private Jewish Day School, develops ethical leadership, confident critical thinking and a lifelong love of learning. By integrating superior general academics and Judaic studies, Mandel JDS achieves academic excellence in a nurturing, welcoming environment that engages and teaches to the whole child. READ MORE
