Parents’ Association

Welcome from the Parents’ Association

Welcome to the Schechter Manhattan’s Parents’ Association! The Parents’ Association includes all parents in the school, and we welcome your involvement. We are committed to creating an engaging, fun and supportive environment for our Schechter Manhattan Family.


At the core of the Parents’ Association is a partnership: partnership among families, between families and faculty, and between home and school. Together, we provide opportunities for people to gather, to celebrate and support each other, to exchange and develop ideas, and to serve the community at large. An essential role of the Parents’ Association is to enhance the school and community through programming and special events.


Please read the Daf Yomi (Daily Notice) every day and the weekly PA news in the Daf Kesher.  You can find the school calendar here.


The Parents’ Association offers a wide range of opportunities to get involved and we invite everyone to join us. Parents can serve as class parents, chairs for events or members of committees. Feel free to be in touch with us via email or to reach out out to your class parent for further details.

We are so excited to serve the Schechter Manhattan Family and look forward to working with you.
