Spertus institutes a new identity

In an organization-wide effort to sharpen its mission, Chicago's Spertus Institute changed its name Monday to Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership. The new identity accentuates the nearly 90-year-old institution's commitment to providing dynamic learning opportunities for adults. These opportunities are rooted in Jewish wisdom and culture and designed to enable both personal growth and the development of community leaders.

Along with offering new professional programming geared towards leadership development, Spertus has been enhancing its roster of public programming both at its South Loop location at 610 S. Michigan Avenue and in the Chicago suburbs. In conjunction with the new identity, it was announced today that New York Times bestselling author Nate Silver (The Signal and The Noise: Why Most Predictions Fail - But Some Don't) will headline a Chicago speaking presentation at Spertus on May 19.  

For more information on Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership and its offerings, as well as to purchase tickets for any of the upcoming programs, visit or call (312) 322-1773.

Spertus Institute is a partner in serving the community, supported by the JUF/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago.
