As a community, we have much to celebrate and many to remember. As the publication of record for the Chicago area's Jewish community, JUF News is pleased to publish announcements of Jewish births; bar/bat mitzvahs, engagements, weddings (following the ceremony), and anniversaries of Jewish couples and obituaries.
