Documenting Maine Jewry :
Alumni Levey Day School (Portland)

This year Levey Day School in Portland is celebrating it's 60th anniversary. Levey is trying to identify any and all alumni, teachers, and board members from the school over its 60 year history. Founded in 1952 as an Orthodox day school, Levey has gone through many changes over the years. It has been housed for a time at each of Portland's synagogues, and has at different times taught students from kindergarten through 8th grade. Today, Levey welcomes a diverse student body from Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, and unaffiliated families in grades k-5, and offers students small classes, exceptional teachers, foreign language immersion, moral and spiritual development, and an exciting secular curriculum that encourages creativity and a love of learning.

If you are a Levey alum, or know a Levey alum, please let us know. Please take a look at our list of known alumni and help us fill in the blanks, which are many. Please share this link with anyone who might be able to help identify other Levey alumni. Heidi Farber (207-871-7270 / HeidiMHEC at at the Levey Day School is looking for the names, year graduated or attended, contact information (email, phone, address and/or Facebook name ). DMJ will post the updated list of names and years on the website to keep all of Levey Alumni informed.

Levey will be holding a celebration on Sunday May 5th to celebrate our 60 years of Jewish day school education in Maine, and would like to be able to invite as many alumni as possible to attend.
