The Jewish Center, a prominent Modern Orthodox synagogue on West 86th Street on the Upper West Side was evacuated after receiving a called-in bomb threat Monday morning, and a nearby day school closed its doors while police conducted a sweep of the Jewish Center.
The street surrounding the synagogue was closed by police during the sweep, said David Pollock, associate executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, who handles security matters.

Beit Rabban, a day school a block from The Jewish Center enforced a lock-down, preventing students or teachers or other people from going into or out of the building.

With recession-battered parents concerned about affordability, and with cheaper alternatives like summer camp and Hebrew charter schools in vogue among philanthropists, it makes sense that the so-called “value proposition” — making the case for why a day school education is worth the money — has become a buzz phrase in the Jewish day school world.
