Jewish Community Day The Jewish Community Day School started 25 years ago around a kitchen table. Moms Ann Leibovit and Carol Roberts were discussing how they wished there was a Jewish school in Palm Beach County for their children. They made their own wish come true when they talked to the director of the Jewish Federation and secured their first donation for the school from Irwin Levy. On Feb. 28, supporters of the Jewish Community Day School, grades kindergarten through eighth, gathered at the Kravis Center to celebrate the school's silver anniversary with a dinner dance gala and auction. And next year, the school will move to a bigger location near the Kaplan Jewish Community Center and reinvent itself as the Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy. Susan Lord, director of administration, said the move will give them the space needed for the student body of 270 and those on the waiting list. The school presently has two classes tor each grade. Additional classes will be added at different grades levels depending on demand. For more information call 585-2227. Corey Brown and Gloria Shareef of John F.
