Kehillah means Community and that means YOU

Your commitment to Jewish education and the growth of Jewish day schools across Chicagoland is what The Kehillah Jewish Education Fund is about. It’s YOUR support that guarantees our Jewish future.

Our Jewish community needs well-informed both general and Jewishly educated children. Our community’s future is dependent on great Jewish leadership. And that leadership comes from a superb Jewish and secular education, producing proud, knowledgeable thinkers and leaders for the next generation.

A general education is a basic need of every person. Society is enriched from well-educated citizens. That’s why we fund public school education through our taxes.

You are doing the same for our Jewish future when you invest in our schools.

Today, over 3,000 children are being educated in our eleven local day schools. These children need you to give so they can receive the educational resources, rich programming, and comprehensive student services that allow them to grow into independent, knowledgeable, self-actualized teens and adults

The Kehillah Jewish Education Fund calls upon the entire Chicagoland Jewish community to join in day-school support.

Our desire to ‘Unite the Community’ is based upon the Torah principle of communal responsibility and an age-old model of a central Kehillah (community) Fund. The Kehillah system is an effective and efficient system to ensure that your funding reaches all the day schools every month with a simple, single sign-up and pledge. When you open your hearts and pockets, everyone wins and the blessings shine down doubly for
