The Religious School of Congregation Emanu-El has a long tradition of supporting the work of organizations working for social justice through weekly tzedakah donations made by its students.
Donation organizations are selected by our
Religious School Student Council representatives.
In 2014-2015, our recipients were:
- West Side Campaign Against Hunger
Students raised more than $1,000 for this "supermarket-style" food pantry.
For our second collection, students helped support the fight against breast cancer with more than $1,200 in funds.
- Charity: Water
Our final collection of the school year was dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Students raised $1,076.21.
Recipients from previous years include:
