A new initiative supporting the individual career growth of local Jewish professionals and the collective growth of Chicago's Jewish community will launch in Chicago next month.
JPRO Chicago will serve as a central resource for professional development by connecting Jewish communal professionals, providing training and leadership development opportunities, inspiring and strengthening individuals and their organizations and empowering professionals to make a difference in the community.
Those who work for or with Jewish organizations are encouraged to attend the launch of JPRO Chicago at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 15 at Moadon Kol Chadash, 2464 N. Clybourn Ave.
The event speaker will be Mats Lederhausen, founder of BE-CAUSE, who will talk about how to inspire others to connect with the Jewish community in a world where people are increasingly looking for ways to contribute to something larger than themselves.
Light food and drinks will be served. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required at
JPRO Chicago is supported in part by the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago.
