Mazels on 10 Years at Keshet
Meet Katie Lightner, known around Camp Chi as "Katie Keshet," the person who ensures everyone is included at overnight camp.
Inclusion is My Passion
Keshet has been a part of my life since I was in sixth grade and now I am a senior in high school. It all started as my Bat Mitzvah project, but it has turned out to be something so much more.
Once I found Keshet, It Was GAME OVER
Iâ€™ve always had a knack for wanting to help people. Growing up in Chicagoâ€™s Jewish community, Keshet and I have somehow always found our way to each other.
Kindness: One Size Fits All
Most 4th graders would set up a lemonade stand to make a little cash, but Talia wanted to do something that would make the world a better place.
WERQ for Keshet
Thank you to all of the hard WERQers that came out to support Keshet. 70 WERQers came together to raise over $1,800 for people with disabilities.
Today was a Sunday for the record books! To say that today was jam-packed with activities is an understatement.
