Teacher Simcha Fund
At the 2013 ATT Gala, a special announcement was made announcing the Rebbetzin Etta Rivka Zucker a”h Teacher Simcha Fund (sponsored by Chicago Day School Community Lay Leaders). Currently, only weddings are eligible to receive funds from the Teacher Simcha Fund, with the hope that the fund will be expanded to cover other Simchas in the future. All full-time teachers in the ATT School System are eligible to receive a significant contribution towards wedding expenses. For questions and requests, please contact Rabbi Mordechai Raizman, Executive Director of Operations, ATT, at 773-973-2828 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
