Frequently Asked Questions about the 2023 Gala

The event will take place on Thursday, May 11. It will begin at 6:30 pm with a strolling dinner in the lobby of the JCC. The event will then move to the Berman Theater. As in years past, you will hear from school leadership, our honorees, and some amazing students! 
The best way to support the event is to purchase an ad in the Ad Journal. There are many levels of ads for every budget, from a $36 Mazal Tov Greeting and up. Journal Ads purchased for $1,000+ include tickets to the event.   

Tickets are required to attend the event and strolling dinner in-person.   

Every year, Frankel Jewish Academy raises nearly a third of our annual fundraising total at the Annual Gala. Your donations help the school to meet our annual budget and continue to provide the quality education to our students for years to come.

The content of your journal ad is completely up to you - photos, text, quotes, just to name a few. We have a few standard suggestions that might help:

Option A
