THE STORY:

jUChicago is a project of the Institute of the Next Jewish Future. Deadline to give: December 31st!

jUChicago's mission is to empower students at the University of Chicago to create Jewish experiences and communities for themselves and their peers. 

If at least 100 supporters make donations of $18 or more, we will send each $18+ supporter a FREE Latke-Hamantash Debate "Matzo Ball" t-shirt (press the arrow icons under the image to the left to see a photo). Suggested giving amounts, and their impact:

Your gifts will help support two of our major program areas: our Community Building Internship and our Home-based Holiday Initiatives. The Community-Building Internship is an intensive, year-long program that trains Jewish students to create and maintain small communities of their peers organized around a shared interest, theme, activity or idea. Our Home-based Holiday Initiatives help hundreds of students celebrate holidays like Passover, the High Holidays and Shabbat in their apartments and dorms. Our highly effective model is low-barrier-to-entry and empowers students to own their Jewish experiences and Jewish lives.

During the 2013-14 academic year, nearly 700 unique students participated in a jU-supported experience. Although the 2014-15 academic year has just begun, we are on track to exceed last year's levels of participation. Close to 300 students participated in 18 different home-based High Holiday experiences during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur this year.

Thank you so much for sharing some of your gelt with us this Hanukkah!
