Following Facebook Competition, 12 Day Schools Will Get $500,000

Twelve U.S. Jewish day schools finished in the top 20 of a competition on Facebook and each will receive $500,000.

Eleven of the top 20 in the $10 million Kohl’s Cares voting are Chabad-affiliated , according to the Lubavitch.com website. The voting ended Sept. 3.

More than 1.8 million people voted, according to the Kohl’s Cares Facebook page. The entrants had to present a feature of their programming – not religious – for the funding.

The Jewish day schools finishing in the top 10 were the Hebrew Academy of Huntington Beach, Calif.; Cheder Menachem and the Bais Chaya Mushka School, both of Los Angeles; and Yeshiva Achei Tmimim Academy of Worcester, Mass.

Lake High School of Millbury, Ohio, finished first with 163,395 votes.
