Our Story


The Stanford Eisenberg Knoxville Jewish Day School is dedicated to the memory of Stanford Eisenberg; a man of high moral character and esteem who made his mark on the Jewish community during his eighty-three blessed years of life. An accomplished US Naval officer during World War II, Stanford Eisenberg went on to achieve success in the world of real estate, establishing a reputation for integrity, creativity and visionary leadership. He was active on behalf of numerous Jewish causes, including Israel Bonds and the UJA.

Considering his passion for Jewish identity and continuity, it is surely a fitting tribute to his life and legacy that KJDS has been aptly named: The Stanford Eisenberg Knoxville Jewish Day School.
