Kehillah Shabbos – Uniting for Jewish Education
On February 25, 2023, Parshas Terumah, 40 local shuls partnered with Kehillah Fund in its vital work to advance Jewish education. Community Rabbonim highlighted the parsha’s focus on Klal Yisrael’s collective generosity toward the building of the Mishkan and underscored how, in the same way, the Chicago Jewish community unites in support of our day schools.
Rabbi Aaron Leibtag, Associate Rabbi of KINS, conveyed a sentiment shared by many Rabbonim of the community. “The Kehillah Fund plays a crucial role within our community, enabling the gift of Jewish education to all of our children, and uniting our entire Chicago Jewish community in the process.”
Inspired by this call to action, Kehillah Fund ambassadors from our schools and shuls joined in the effort to encourage members of our community to support our day schools.
