"Each child brings his own blessing into the world ” (Jewish folk saying)
“Our mission would be education - to learn from the past, understand the present and prepare for tomorrow.”
“I believed that even more so now the education is our greatest opportunity for the future and our greatest gift for our children.At the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation, we call children the future (...) Where the destruction of the holocaust was followed by the oppression of communist rule (…), providing a Jewish education is our primary goal. For we know that if you bring Jewish life to children, they will bring it home to their parents-the lost generation that was deprived of their heritage. ”
Ronald S. Lauder, Founder and President, USA, Europe & Israel
“[...] back in 1997, I undertook with pride and honor the Lauder mission, to revive the Jewish education here in Romania. I have started right in the place where the former Jewish school was, in the old Jewish quarter in Bucharest, died out for over 50 years of Nazism and communism.
My lifetime work and project is to ensure our little and young the best possible education, the best possible conditions, in the most professional, yet tolerant, affectionate, multicultural environment, so that they would grow up in a solid discipline of study, strengthened by self-confidence and pride to be a Lauder student.”
