Scholarship Grant Awarded to BYDS

Helen and Samuel Schaffer

Beth Yeshurun Day School has been selected to receive a matching grant from The Helen and Samuel Schaffer Jewish Education Fund of the Houston Jewish Community Foundation.  The grant will be used to extend financial assistance to families committed to a Jewish day school education.  BYDS remains strongly committed to offering financial assistance to those families in need.

Through this grant, BYDS will expand its educational and social environment to all Jewish families.  Our greatest responsibility is to give our children the opportunity to become successful and involved in the Houston Jewish community.  Helen and Samuel Schaffer’s philanthropy provides a gateway to lifelong Jewish engagement by students to integrate Jewish ideals and Jewish education into their daily lives.

If you would like to contribute to this important fund contact Guido Setton, Director of Advancement at or call 713.666. 1884.
