Chicago Chesed Fund is constantly running programing and events to help raise awareness and funds for the different services that we provide. Here are the programs we host throughout the year.

2,711 Blatt. 24 Hours. The zchus for a shidduch.

There are few sights more heartwarming than a man and woman standing together under their chuppah, ready to begin the beautiful journey of marriage. Every day, Jewish singles around the world search for their perfect matches.

On this upcoming Tu B’Shvat hundreds of lomdim will embark on a 24-hour quest to complete shas for the zchus of helping Klal Yisroel’s singles find their basherts.

All proceeds will be donated exclusively toward solving the Shidduch Crisis.

Fighting infertility, one step at a time.

StepUp is a 574-Step women’s tower climb to help others achieve the dream of motherhood.

The StepUp Tower Run yielded an incredible turnout, with dozens of Chicago women showing a tremendous outpouring of support to those struggling to create a family. The sense of achdus was palpable, as the community came together to raise funds for fertility treatments, in the hopes that there will be more mothers celebrating Mother’s Day next year.

As the perfect follow-up to the climb, an exclusive climbers after-party was set up with a juice bar, photo booth, snacks, and exciting giveaways. The participants laughed, talked, and compared experiences, creating the perfect end to a perfect day.

A community-wide men’s 5K race to help Chicago’s Jewish families in need.

Speed To Feed is a 5k walk/run coordinated by the Chicago Chesed Fund to raise money in order to provide food for Chicago’s Jewish families in need. Community members gathered their respective teams made up of shul members, co-workers, friends and family to race at the beautiful Busse Woods Forest Preserve, all in the name of chesed.
