£1000 Supporters Club Challenge
For the second year running, this High Holiday season your gift is DOUBLED to help your community!
Chabad Islington is launching its second annual High Holiday Supporters Club Challenge in October, where friends and other supporters have the opportunity to help grow our community services.
As we enter the High Holiday season we're planning a whole range of events and services to celebrate the Jewish New Year. However, holding High Holiday events is expensive, and although we do our best to subsidise tickets, we know that the costs of running them will be high.
That’s why we're launching our Supporters Club Challenge, to help make our programme accessible to anyone who wants to join, and to ensure we can continue our work throughout the year. Our goal is to secure £1000 worth of monthly donations this High Holiday season.
Act quickly – this match runs out on the 31st October.
