B’nei Mitzvah Project Spotlight

  • Support TBE Religious School b’nei mitzvah student Carli Sloan’s mitzvah project! Carli is hand tie dying 3-ply cotton masks and selling them for $10 each. After tie dying them, she adds beads to the ear loops to make them adjustable in size for the perfect fit. All of the proceeds go to the organization Families Helping Families Chicagoland to help get school supplies and essential necessities to children in need. Since the children’s families aren’t able to afford the supplies they need, she decided to help change that so they are able have the essential necessities. Way to go Carli! Contact us to learn how you can support Carli’s mitzvah project and purchasing a mask.

  • Support 7th grader Jacob Block who is collecting new and gently used shoes for Share Your Soles Foundation. To get the drop off address, please email Shaina Farwell.
