Our long awaited Chicago Jewish Funerals 2 year calendars are finally here!
Please stop by at one of our two funeral homes to get your copy, or call us at 847.229.8822 and we can mail it to you.
Each month, it spotlights one of the many of the community organizations Chicago Jewish Funerals has sponsored over the years in an effort to generate awareness and support. The calendar is free to the organizations and free to the community.
There’s Hebrew phrase, Tikun Olan, that literally means repair the world. The organizations in this calendar make a difference in our community, in Israel, and throughout the world. They make the world a better place, said Jacobson. With this calendar, I decided to follow their lead. I hope this calendar can help make our community a better place.
Each organization gets a full page in the calendar to promote itself. They also get to include a post card that can be mailed back to request more information. The Chicago area is filled with extraordinary programs and services that need our support. I want this calendar to encourage families to learn more about these organizations and consider how they can engage, connect and support, Jacobson explained.
The calendar begins with August 2017 and runs through July 2019 and corresponds to the years 5077 and 5079 in the Jewish calendar. The calendar is available 2017. To obtain a copy of the Make the World a Better Place calendar, call Chicago Jewish Funerals: 847.229.8822 or visit one of our funeral homes in Buffalo Grove or Skokie.
