Sinai Akiba Academy can now proudly boast a healthy endowment of $20 million, which was reached as a result of a generous $5 million gift from Anna and Bill Tenenblatt. This gift is part of the School’s ongoing effort to attain a $50 million endowment, a permanent investment fund that uses its interest to support school operations.
