Dear ICJA Family:

I know it’s Sunday, and there have been no class sessions since my erev Shabbat update, but there are a few things to share:

  1. Student Council Mask Project! I’ve often said, that the best thing about Ida Crown are our students. Once again they’ve proven it, as ICJA Student Council is raising money for the chesed organizations of Chicago via sales of ICJA face masks. Attached is the flyer, and here is the link – Order a mask, stay safe and help others – all at the same time!
