Heilicher encourages students' grandparents and special, grandparent-generation friends to become involved in their education and the rich family life of our school.
Yom Dor L’Dor Event
(Grandparents and Special Persons Day)
This event is just for students and their grandparents or grandparent-generation guests. Two events provide a chance to visit the classroom, share wisdom, and contribute life experiences to the next generation’s learning process. Our next event will be held on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 (details will be sent to parents and grandparents prior to the event).
Throughout the year, grandparents also have the opportunity to:
- View photos online of grandchildren at Heilicher.
- Attend all-school assemblies and other special events (this year, all events are virtual). View the School Calendar
- Participate in Heilicher committees, as interest and time permits.
- Receive The Heilicher Magazine, our semi-annual print newsletter.
- Donate philanthropically to Heilicher.
We welcome your involvement in the life of Heilicher!

We are proud of the robust philanthropic support from our grandparent body. The following Dor L’Dor Circle list includes all grandparents and alumni grandparents who have given to Heilicher since July 1, 2020. Thank you!
Heilicher Annual Benefit
Participate in the Heilicher Annual Benefit, our largest event of the year, and an opportunity for our whole community to come together to celebrate our school. Whether through an event sponsorship, tribute gift, participation in the online or live auction, or by attending the event itself, there are many ways to be part of this wonderful evening.
Ways to Give
Each year, Heilicher students benefit from the philanthropic support of families across our community. Through the generosity of more than 550 annual donors, as well as those who have made meaningful endowment and legacy gifts to our school, we are able to create future generations of Jewish learners and leaders.
With your generous contributions, we can ensure that every child who desires an extraordinary Heilicher education has access to it. Through philanthropic support, the values of our parents, grandparents, and the generations that preceded them are perpetuated long into the future.

"Heilicher is the perfect blend of a nurturing, flexible educational setting which values individual learning needs, high academic standards and wide exposure to Jewish culture and wisdom for our grandchild. For these reasons and more it is important to us to give to Heilicher to ensure our grandchild's day school education is strong today and in the future."
