What's New in the Guide

Dr. Chaim Cember Shaarei Chinuch Day School

At Shaarei Chinuch, we integrate Judaism with the Montessori method, to give each child a comprehensive hands-on learning experience catered to his/her unique talents. Our mission is to help each of our students to reach their full potential, while instilling an excitement for learning that lasts a lifetime. 

Illinois Center for Jewish Studies

The mission of the Illinois Center for Jewish Studies (ICJS) is to provide every Jew, regardless of background, affiliation, or religious observance, the opportunity to be inspired by and connected to Torah and Judaism. We believe that people learn and develop differently, and that Torah study should be unique to every person's individual journey. ICJS seeks to provide a personalized learning experience to nurture mind and soul in both individual and group settings. The Illinois Center for Jewish Studies hosts weekly educational classes for men and women in bible studies, Jewish philosophy, and special topics. The organization also provides individual one-on-one learning sessions for men to advance their bible knowledge and ability to improve personally. In addition to formal group/individual classes, the organization has seasonal social gatherings in an effort to promote Jewish education, as well as an annual benefit dinner to raise funds for its operations.

 

Tikkun HaBriet

Tikkun HaBriet (Healing the Covenant), the only Jewish-based program that helps give struggling couples (and those stuck in a rough patch) another chance to redefine their marriage. This program begins the process of examining your goals and values and teach some new tools to rebuild into your loving relationship. Tikkun HaBriet is based on another faith's program that has been around for 40 years. Couples of all faiths, interfaith or no faith are welcome to attend. Without attention and care, marriages wither and couples slowly and quietly drift apart or are often torn apart by health, financial events or hurtful actions. Far too many couples live in misery, no longer feeling the joy of their once loving relationship. If you are experiencing challenges in your marriage, the Tikkun HaBriet Program may be able to help give your marriage another chance. Couples come to Tikkun HaBriet for many reasons, but you will never be asked why you are attending or be required to share.
