Jewish schools captured 12 of the top 20 slots in a US competition for a total of $10 million.

The 20 schools that garnered the most votes on Facebook in the Kohl's Cares competition will each receive $500,000. The voting ends on Sept. 3.Of the 12 Jewish schools from around the United States currently in the top 20, eight are Chabad-Lubavitch. First place is currently held by Silverstein Hebrew Academy, a Chabad school in Great Neck, N.Y., with nearly 72,000 votes. 

To vote, one must have a Facebook account and be a fan of Kohl's, allowing it access profile information. Voters can offer ideas for how the school should use the money, though it's up to the schools whether to accept or reject the ideas.
