THE STORY:

The Fayth Aronson-Berkowitz Chesed Society Fund is being established by her parents, Selma and Bill Aronson, in memory of their beloved daughter Fayth, Faygie Devorah Bas Zev, who succumbed to cancer at the young age of 27.

Fayth, a graduate of Hillel Academy of Pittsburgh, and a beloved Baltimore pre-school teacher, touched the lives of so many with her acts of kindness. A true Baalas Chesed (readily performing acts of kindness), Fayth’s example of care and concern for others, her giving neshama (soul), and continuous drive to act on behalf of others, was an inspiration for everyone who knew her. A quiet and humble person, Fayth was a doer, always looking to help someone in need.


The Fayth Aronson-Berkowitz Chesed Society will ensure that every Hillel Academy Girl’s High School and Middle School student develops Fayth’s appreciation and desire to seek out chesed (acts of kindness) opportunities in their community. At the beginning of each school year, the students will study the different service needs in the community, and work together to create or adopt a Chesed project for the year. Each year on the 6th of Shvat, Fayth’s yartzheit (anniversary of her death), Hillel Academy will hold a school-wide Day of Chesed. As part of the Day of Chesed, the students will prepare activities and materials in order to involve the entire school in their project. The Day of Chesed will include a lunch to remember Fayth and educate the community about the current year’s Chesed project.
Five-percent of the Fayth Aronson-Berkowitz Chesed Society Fund’s income will be used each year to assist with the chesed project’s costs. In doing so, the Fund will endow a constant and permanent remembrance of Fayth’s dedication to her community, and ensure that each of our graduates become the Fayth’s of their community.
Contributions to the Fayth Aronson-Berkowitz Chesed Society can be made payable to the Hillel Academy of Pittsburgh. Hillel Academy has a matching grant for money raised through social media, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 from the AVI CHAI Foundation. Individual gifts of up to $500, made by April 15, will be matched.Spread the word to your fellow Hillel Academy alumni, their families, and parents, and all of your Facebook and Twitter friends through your page so everyone will give just like you.
