$500,000 for the MHA

In case you haven’t yet heard, Kohl’s Department Store is running a Facebook contest in which people can vote for the schools they believe should get a $500,000 donation. The top 20 vote getters will all get the award. According to a story in the Jewish Week, there are currently 20 Jewish Schools amongst the top 50 vote getters. While the size of our school puts us at a disadvantage, we’ve shown time and again that our little school is capable of some pretty big things. So this is yet another opportunity for us to rally our troops and rise to the occasion!

Here’s what we have to do:

1. Go to and vote for the Margolin Hebrew Academy. You have 20 votes and can use up to 5 for one school, so please do!

2. Send this message to everyone you know, let them know it’s not a hoax, and ask them to do the same.

For some schools, $500,000 is a drop in the bucket. For us, it could have a profound impact on our children and our community. The contest ends September 3rd so please don’t push it off. Take just a few seconds to give us your 5 votes and encourage everyone you know to do the same.

Thanks for your help!
