"I was fortunate to visit the Walder Education Pavilion. I was left utterly speechless. Every Jewish community deserves to have a place like WEP. From the countless bookcases filled with curriculum materials, to the mind- boggling array of arts and crafts, to the cutting edge computer, printer, and design equipment made available for teachers – everything that a teacher needs to become the best, could be found there. In a word: Extraordinary."

- Robert Sussman, Head of Judaic Studies, Umhlanga Jewish Day School, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa Executive Director
