Jonathan Hackner
Trustee Joint Chief Executive Officer of the NetFlorist group

I never had the privilege of attending a Jewish day school, and in my adult life, once my interest in my Jewish knowledge grew, I realised how much I had missed. For this reason my wife and I were determined that our children should attend King David to ensure that they receive a solid Jewish education that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

The impact that the King David Schools has on our community cannot be underestimated, for this wonderful network of schools are the binding force that links grandparents, extended family and friends all over the world. I am pleased to have been given the opportunity of playing apart in initiating the Dor le Dor Campaign as I believe the pioneering founders of the King David Schools had amazing foresight in establishing this incredible asset, a legacy that is the responsibility of our generation to develop for the future of the entire South African Jewish community.
