The Guide to Jewish Living offers a comprehensive, up-to-date listing of Chicago-area Jewish organizations, resources, products, and services.

Listings submitted online will appear, as appropriate, online and in the next annual print edition of the Guide to Jewish Living in Chicago. Annual print edition copies are available with a minimum annual donation of $25 to the JUF. Click here to donate.

The Guide is based on specific organizing principles:

  • Only organizations, businesses, and individuals that are deemed to provide specific services, products, or information that directly pertain to, support, or enhance Jewish life in the Metropolitan Chicago area are listed in the Guide.
  • The purpose in producing a directory is to point users to resources, which they then must assess for themselves. Only brief, direct descriptions of products/services can be accommodated. The Guide does offer advertising opportunities.
  • Use of the Guide should be quick, easy, and reliable. The Guide accomplishes this through: table of contents, alphabetical indexes, and individual listings.
  • As a free directory produced by a nonprofit organization, the Guide adheres to a strict budget; therefore, it is not feasible to print multiple listing of individual entities.
  • The publisher reserves the right to determine the content and placement of the listings, and cannot be held liable for the accuracy or completeness of the information presented. New listing submissions and updates will take effect within 7-14 business days.

What's New in the Guide

Silverstein Base Hillel

The Silverstein Base Hillel is a home for Metro Chicago Hillel students and their friends and the actual home of a rabbinic family committed to pluralism and founded on three core values: hospitality, learning, and service. Rabbi Megan and her wife Paige GoldMarche invite all Metro Chicago Hillel students and other young adults, living in or visiting the Lincoln Park area, into their home to learn, volunteer, celebrate, and of course, eat with them. Metro Chicago Hillel is fortunate to have the first Base Hillel in the country integrated into a campus Hillel.
