MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE: CHICAGO JEWISH FUNERALS CREATES NEW CALENDAR TO SUPPORT COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS

SKOKIE, IL, July 6, 2011 At a time when everyone is forced to do more with less, David Jacobson, founder of Chicago Jewish Funerals, determined he could do more for those who had less. Jacobson decided to create a 24-month Jewish Calendar. Each month he would spotlight one of the many of the community organizations he 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 2011 and runs through July 2012 and corresponds to the years 5072 and 5073 in the Jewish calendar. The calendar will be available July 2011. To obtain a copy of the Make the World a Better Place calendar call Chicago Jewish Funerals: 888-509-5011 or visit the website at chicagojewishfunerals.com.
