Our professionally illustrated, four color, 32 page children's book, "A Chicken for Shabbat," tells a wonderful story about children helping others and the significance of Shabbat. This book is the primary marketing and promotional tool of this program.
The Tzedakah box, pictured on the left, is assembled and creatively decorated by each student participating in our Chicken for Shabbat program. Children then put deposit money in their boxes and at a specific date, return their full boxes to their synagogue or school. All funds are turned over to the benefiting agency and used to fund their food relief programs.
In 2015 this program was first launched in both South Palm Beach and Palm Beach Counties. Over 3,500 children in synagogues and Jewish day schools participated in this program. They were all taught the meaning and responsibility to help others and through their efforts, over $10,000 was raised.
