A vibrant and democratic society where all people have the community supports they need to thrive.


Educational Alliance brings together and partners with diverse communities in Lower Manhattan, offering individuals and families high-quality, multi-generational programs and services that enhance their well-being and socioeconomic opportunities.


Educational Alliance has a proud legacy as a Jewish organization whose values and approach are drawn from our teachings and history. We will continue to look to our rich past­—our texts, symbols, rituals, and teachers—for inspiration and guidance.

Our Jewish identity animates our work every day through the following key values:

  • Every person is born with a divine spark of dignity and creativity.
  • We are a joyful, open-tent community where everyone is welcome.
  • Universal education is necessary for equal citizenship.
