Building our heritage

We’re raising money to build a new home for our Russian speaking Jewish community of Chicago. To make this dream a reality, In addition to our main 3 Million dollar campaign with 83% raised, we’ve set up this campaign with a goal of $100,000.

With your help, Heritage Russian Jewish Congregation can reach this goal and create a beautiful spiritual, social and educational Center for our families - for you!

Big things are built one brick at a time. Help us meet our goal! Donate $1,000 to sponsor a brick, or any amount will make a difference!
