are the community’s DNA. Just as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) guides the development of a human body, so, too, do our schools shape the future of our kehillah. Our community is a living, breathing, evolving entity. It can flourish or it can falter, depending on the successful transmission of our “genetic code” – which is not a matter of biology. Jews have always been the People of the Book, and we perpetuate our society through education.

Supporting the Chicago area’s Jewish day schools is as vital as physically nourishing young lives. As our children – the children of every Jewish household in the metropolitan area – grow and mature, they become the cells of the organism we call “community.” It is they who will determine the course of our future. It is they who will be responsible for bringing forth the next generations and for nurturing them both spiritually and intellectually. If you could ensure the healthy development of a human being, would you? Please join me in safeguarding our community’s future by making Jewish day school education viable, increasingly valuable, and the inviolable birthright of every Jewish child.

how we’re helping OUR SCHOOLS

The Kehillah Fund’s mission is to encourage and enable all Jewish families to provide their children with an outstanding Jewish and secular education, which will make them knowledgeable and proud of their Judaism. With this educational background, they will be able to contribute to the community that helped them, and to interface with society at large with confidence. The Kehillah Fund works to inspire and unite the community in support of this mission, thereby building a Jewish community that will live on in perpetuity.

earned the trust of our kehillah. They most certainly deserve the great blessing of our sages, of blessed memory: “All who are involved faithfully in the needs of the community – may the Holy One, blessed be He, reward them and remove from them every affliction, and send blessing and success to all of their work, along with all Israel, their brethren.” To these administrators, allow me to say: It is a privilege to work in your company, and I wish to thank you publicly for becoming my friends and partners in making our communal dream a reality.

what can we do to guarantee JEWISH CONTINUITY &VIBRANCY? Nesanel Siegal

It’s providing a quality Jewish education to the community’s children. And just who is responsible for doing this? THE ANSWER IS CLEAR.

I am. And you are. Jewish Law dictates that both parents themselves and all other members of the community are. Today, Jewish education is the most costly expense our community faces. And this is exactly how the Kehillah Jewish Education Fund can help. Painlessly. And with a great fringe benefit: unity.

through our communal responsibility of funding Jewish education (which Jewish communities have done for centuries). To achieve this, we’ve created the systems to help pay for Jewish education. We’ve set up a unique, monthly giving system that funds our community’s Jewish days schools by automatically charging your credit or debit card. (You choose the dollar amount that’s most appropriate for you.) This saves you the inconvenience of writing and mailing a check. This also funds our schools reliably every month, so they know how much they can expect, and can budget for it. And you’re not constantly hassled with phone calls. When you see the charge on your bank or credit card statement, you’re reminded to be proud that you are doing your part as a responsible Kehillah member to ensure that our system is working for your schools and for the community, and to help guarantee Jewish continuity. And for that, we thank you. And your community’s children and schools thank you.

The Kehillah Fund’s task is to unite the entire community

The Kehillah Jewish Education Fund distributes the community’s donation dollars to eleven Jewish day schools every month. The allocation is determined by relative enrollment, dividing the total donations proportionately to each school according to its number of students. Since the Kehillah Fund began in 2004, this system has been equitable and reliable. Current monthly allocations are $58,000 each month, for a total of $5.7 million to date.

is multifaceted. More than fifty of Chicago’s rabbinic leaders have endorsed the work of the Kehillah Jewish Education Fund. Additionally, each of the Kehillah Fund’s board members approaches our shared mission with a different perspective, contributes his own set of experiences and talents, and adds to our dynamic dialogue.

The schools that benefit from the Kehillah Fund’s efforts occupy different niches in our community and meet different needs. Besides spanning a spectrum of philosophies, our schools also address a variety of academic, social, and emotional circumstances.

OUR COMMUNITY

Tomer Bitton, an Arie Crown board member and parent, said he appreciates the opportunity to think more broadly about day school education. “The Kehillah Fund helps us focus on community issues beyond the schools we’re affiliated with directly.”

The current Kehillah Fund board members are: Aryeh Leib (Lawrence) Benjamin, Tomer Bitton, Jonah Bruck, Mark Campbell, Bill Coleman, Eli Davis, Moishe Davis, Nesanel Davis, David Hartman, Ami Robinson, Micha Rose, Nesanel Siegal, Dr. Yosef Walder, and board president Yitzi Weiss. These individuals, who represent many schools and shuls, come together regularly to discuss how their combined investments of time, energy, and financial support can be used most effectively to strengthen Jewish day school support throughout our Kehillah.

“The Kehillah Fund is vital to our community because Jewish education is everyone’s responsibility,” JDBY-YTT parent Micha Rose emphasized. “We are working to develop a system of universal support for Jewish education. It is a common thread that connects us all.” Jonah Bruck sharpened his fellow board members’ statements with concrete terms: “Without the Kehillah Fund, the community would need to find other ways to raise millions of dollars

“When you get involved with the Kehillah Fund, people understand that

– not an easy task. The Kehillah Fund is vital to keeping our Jewish education [tuition] from skyrocketing.” While their motives may have minor differences, each of the Kehillah Fund’s board members devotes tireless efforts, provides sage counsel, and lends direction to the Fund’s dedicated staff. To the board’s credit, the Kehillah Fund’s work continually becomes more efficient and effective as its leaders strive together toward the common goal of widespread communal funding for our schoolchildren and sustainability for the community’s future.

These individuals, who represent many schools and shuls, come together regularly to discuss how their combined investments of time, energy, and financial support can be used most effectively to strengthen Jewish day school support throughout our Kehillah.

country. Historically, Jewish communities have been funding children’s

education even longer.

Following in the footsteps of our Jewish ancestors and of the founding fathers of this country, it is clear that much of the solution to funding day school education is in the hands of the community. It is a matter of our collective and individual

Supporting our day schools is therefore a core obligation of the entire community, regardless of specific interests we have as individuals. The more successful our schools are, the stronger our community will be, and the better able we will be to support all of our charitable institutions – including our schools themselves. Solving our day school tuition problem is a matter of adjusting our thinking: Our private schools are community institutions, funded by the entire community and benefiting the entire community. The cost, when borne by all and seen as a building block of our collective future, is not so burdensome after all.

need a minimal number of dollars per student in order to keep their doors open. The Kehillah Fund has established the Achdus Scholarship Fund in response to such situations. Funding for this initiative comes from donations that are completely separate from the Kehillah Fund’s regular allocations to our schools. The Achdus

Scholarship Fund distributed $240,000 directly to the schools in 2013 to ensure that our community’s most financially vulnerable children continue to receive a quality education. More information is available at the Kehillah Fund office or by contacting (847) 745-1668 or KehillahFund@gmail.com.

responsibility for the future financial and spiritual health of our community. Day schools are the foundation upon which are built all of our values, hopes, and dreams for not only our own children and future progeny, but for our community today and in the centuries to come. All Jewish children, whether rich or poor, not only equally deserve a quality Jewish education, but have the potential to give back to the community.

American life since

D O L L A R S

So why are parents paying so much for their children’s day school education? The difference is that public schools are funded by everyone, not just parents. Funding comes from the government, which means that the cost is spread among everyone who pays taxes, whether or not they have children in the schools.

The second answer is that we have to consider how much the community asks of its day schools. Currently, community expectations are that schools provide academic excellence in both Jewish and general studies, small classes, and pedagogy that addresses each child’s needs, including appropriate services for the growing number of students with special needs. Beyond academics, parents and community leaders have come to recognize that schools must inspire passionate Jewish living. These requirements mean hiring a large and talented staff as well as giving teachers appropriate support and supervision. In most Orthodox day schools, high tuition does not lead to a decline in enrollment, but it does place a great strain on middle-income families and often prevents one parent from staying home to raise the children.

M I L L I O N

Yossi Prager, the Avi Chai Foundation’s executive director for North America, confirmed that this is typical across the country. In his words, “the average cost per student in the same geographic area is almost certainly comparable or lower [than local public schools].”

Publicly funded schools “ have been part of

$ 5 . 7

The first answer is, surprisingly, “It’s not.” Compared to public schools, Jewish day schools are well within the state norm as far as cost per student. According to the Illinois State Board of Education, the average cost per kindergarten through eighth-grade student in the public schools in 20122013 was $11,457 – slightly higher than the average Jewish day school cost per student at $10,527. This is even more surprising in light of the longer school day and increased staff needed for general and Jewish studies. In addition, some of our schools are more complex in terms of social curricula and a variety of culturally unique activities.

In fact, publicly funded schools have been part of American life since before the United States became an independent country. Historically, Jewish communities have been funding children’s education even longer. Embracing this tradition again within our modern, capitalist society is a challenge. Ultimately, it will lead to a self-generating method of funding Jewish day school education. Well-educated children who love Yiddishkeit will become adult members of the community who in turn will help educate the next generation.

JEWISH DAY SCHOOL MONTH & KEHILLAH SHABBOS

lead in communal funding innovation

as its launch, February 2014 is Jewish Day School Month across the Chicago area. The elements are evident everywhere: in the schools, in the shuls, and in the shops. From the Kehillah Matters Essay Competition to the signs on the walls of our community partners’ stores, the concept of communal funding for Jewish day school education has caught on.

WITH KEHILLAH SHABBOS

Kehillah Shabbos 5774 is the second time the Chicago-area community has dedicated Parashas Terumah to promoting broad-based local support of our very own day schools. The connection is clear: As we read each year, Bnei Yisrael contributed what they could – according to each individual’s ability – to the Mishkan, a community institution. No one was forced to pay more than was possible, and everyone found a way to participate. Similarly, our Jewish day schools are central to our community, and the Kehillah Fund underscores the

importance of this shared responsibility by bringing together leaders across the community on this particular Shabbos each year. The rabbonim of 35 shuls spoke to their congregations about the mitzvah of providing an education for all of the Jewish children of our community. With the schooling that meets their myriad needs, all of these children will become full-fledged members of our community, proud and knowledgeable of their mesorah, our beloved heritage, and confidently equipped to contribute to society at large and our community specifically. This year, Kehillah Captains were the Fund’s community ambassadors, encouraging their peers to unite in support of Jewish day school education. Some of the captains already were board members, while others were more newly invested in the Kehillah Fund’s decadelong campaign. All gave of their time and their shem tov, their good name, for the benefit of our kehillah. The Kehillah Captains were: Barry Bass, Aryeh Leib Benjamin, Jonah Bruck, Mark Campbell, Benji Cohen, Bill Coleman, Nesanel Davis, Dr. David Dobkin, Pesach Glaser, Rabbi Moshe Shimon Gluck, Dr. Justin Gordon, Rabbi Eliezer Grunberg, David Hartman, Binyomin Hurwitz, Zev

NEW KEHILLAH FUND INITIATIVE: for the children, by the children AS OUR SCHOOLS work to educate the

community’s children, what could be more natural than teaching them about communal responsibility? The Kehillah Fund has initiated the first annual Kehillah Matters Essay Competition, part of Jewish Day School Month, as a way of engaging the children themselves. Sixth- through eighth-grade students are exploring the meaning of “kehillah” as they write about the nature of a kehillah, the obligations of an individual to his or her community, and what they enjoy most about our kehillah.

Entry requirements, which have been distributed at all Kehillah Fund schools, include a reference to at least one Torah teaching. Finalists will receive $50 gift certificates, and the winner will receive a $100 gift certificate. All children are encouraged to participate, and parents who need more information may call (847) 745-1668 or email KehillahMatters@gmail.com with the word “Question” in the subject line. The submission deadline has been extended to February 28.

In recognition of our Chicagoland community’s groundbreaking program, Hamodia newspaper, with a vast readership across North America, published an article on March 6, 2013 about the first Kehillah Shabbos. The article featured the Kehillah Fund’s innovative system of automatic monthly donations and reliable monthly allocations as a model for other communities to emulate. The newspaper also pointed out that about half of Kehillah members currently have children in the day schools, while the other half do not. The Kehillah Matters Essay Competition is sponsored through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Campbell in loving memory of Eitan Hillel ben Mishael, z”l; Mr. Sherwin Feldstein in loving memory of Sender Leib ben Moshe, z”l; and Mr. and Mrs. Aryeh Leib Benjamin in loving memory Pearl bas Ene, z”l.

Arie Crown intends to use some of its new funding to help cover the cost of additional security improvements to the school, the majority of which are covered at present by a security grant from the JUF. The generous benefactors at these two schools, Hillel Torah and Arie Crown, have set off a momentum that enhances our community’s sense of unity and tzedakah. Thanks to the participation of families and supporters of the two schools, and to the outstanding executive staff that orchestrates these programs, these matching grant initiatives will have everincreasing benefits for the individual schools, for all of Chicagoland’s Jewish day schools, and for our kehillah as a whole.

Friends, parents, and staff members of Hillel Torah had one month in which to make their commitments. They did so with great enthusiasm, raising the Kehillah Fund’s total annual support for the schools by over $14,000 and increasing the Fund’s recurring allocations – to Hillel Torah and all of the other schools – by $1,200 each month. The Robinsons also have donated over $7,000 to Hillel Torah as part of this program.
