Jewish Community Day School is fortunate to recognize many "good names" who have made pluralistic Jewish education possible in our community over the past twenty-seven years. This year, it is our privilege to honor two such esteemed individuals. Madilyn and Alvin Samuels have been an integral part of the school’s founding, its success, its perseverance through difficult times, and its success again. The Samuels family has been ever-present at JCDS, serving on the Board of Trustees, attending numerous school events, and through significant financial support. Their financial support includes an incredibly generous gift, given in memory of Patti Arnold Samuels, that helped build our current campus. Patti’s lasting legacy can be seen in any complete logo or signage of the school which reads: "Inspired by Patti Arnold Samuels." Madilyn and Alvin are the proud grandparents of three JCDS alums, and we are all very proud to consider them friends.
