Who We Are

Founded by the Orthodox Union, lay leaders and a broad network of Jewish day schools and yeshivas, Teach Advocacy’s success relies on the active participation of our families, schools, rabbis and communities.

The tuition crisis will not end overnight. But every year, we are making progress and sending millions of dollars to nonpublic schools across the country.
