(lubavitch.com) Eleven out of the top 20 schools garnering the greatest number of votes in Kohl’s Cares school competition, are Chabad-affiliated schools.
Despite the fact that Chabad schools lost their lead during the last hours of voting Friday which coincided with Shabbos, when all voting activity came to a grinding halt, their strong voting numbers held up.
Hebrew Academy of Huntington Beach landed in fifth place with 148,234 votes; Cheder Menachem of LA in seventh place, with others from Worcestor, MA, Charlotte, NC, Florida and the New York area following.
Each of the winning schools will take home a half million dollar prize from Kohl’s department stores.
