2009 Alumni honored as one of Chicago's Double Chai in the Chi

Mazal tov to Yali Derman (CJHS ’09) for being honored as one of Chicago’s Double Chai in the Chi! http://www.oychicago.com/36under36/bio36-2020.aspx?id=29577&cid=20373

Yali serves as a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner at Lurie Children’s Hospital, the same hospital that took care of her when she was a cancer patient. Yali is also an artist who created her own line of handbags under the label "Yali's Carry On Collection," a philanthropic handbag company. The proceeds have benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation and have funded a play space at Lurie's Children's Hospital.

This spring, we were fortunate to host Yali at a virtual Friday tefillah, where Yali offered beautiful words of Torah about Parashat Tazria-Metzora. Click here to see her dvar Torah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-sMBwrleJY

#GivingTuesdayNow

Over the last several weeks, we have adapted to an ever-changing crisis. We have found strength in one other, in our mission, and in ensuring that RZJHS remains a pillar for our students and their families during this time. And although we are facing an unprecedented challenge, RZJHS remains steadfast in its mission to create a culture of academic excellence that inspires and prepares our students to think critically, achieve their full potential, and live Judaism as responsible and involved citizens in the modern world.

We acknowledge the financial impact COVID-19 has had on our families, yet it is too early to know the full impact. What we do know is that we can expect a significant increase in the need for tuition assistance for the coming school year.

This is why today, May 5, RZJHS will join nonprofits all around the world for #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity created to help organizations respond to the impact that COVID-19 has had on their communities.

Every dollar that we raise on May 5 will directly support tuition assistance. We ask those who can to please join us for #GivingTuesdayNow. Every single gift, no matter the size, will have a tremendous impact on our community. If you have already made a gift to RZJHS this year, thank you. Please consider an additional gift. If you have not given this year, please consider making a gift to help to ensure that all who want an RZJHS education can afford to do so.

We are grateful for all you do to make RZJHS not just a school but a community.
