We focused in a Chicago community-wide event
Let’s ensure we stay focused.
On September 4, 2018, led by our city’s Rabbonim, we gathered for an event that was truly historic. We focused on fortifying safeguards and decreasing distractions in today’s tech-centered world.
The mission of Project Focus is to encourage a communal culture change towards the use of technology in the city of Chicago.
