" The turning point in my life was coming to RZJHS because that was when I became a leader. I was empowered by my teachers and I learned how to be a good student. I developed a good work ethic, I took initiative, and I got to shape a lot of things that are still in existence at RZJHS today. I definitely wouldn’t trade my unique experience for anything."
Mishloach Manot literally means delivery of portions. This is one of four central mitzvot on Purim, the practice of sending gifts of food to friends and relatives to bring happiness to our local community. Purim 5776 runs from Wednesday night, March 23rd through Thursday, March 24th.
Here at Rochelle Zell Jewish High School, our Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) sponsors an annual Mishloach Manot drive for the school community. YPI works hard throughout the year to fundraise for a philanthropic cause. This year’s proceeds go to The Chicago Foundation for Education, a local organization that provides resources to teachers and schools to enhance the quality of education.
By participating in the Rochelle Zell Jewish High School Mishloach Manot drive you not only ensure that every Rochelle Zell Jewish High School family receives a delicious bag of treats, but also contribute to an organization that does powerful work in our community.
