Summer LEADS 2019

We're sorry, online registration for this program is now closed. Please contact the YLD office at 312-357-4880 or if you have any questions. Thank you!


The Summer LEADS Program is a great way to meet new people in Chicago and offers an introductory exploration of the Jewish community in a fun, relaxed social setting. Groups will be formed in several areas of the city and separated by age. LEADS participants will join together for a bar event following most sessions.

The cost to participate is $50, which includes 5 sessions, food, speakers and all program supplies. In addition to the program fee participants will also be asked to make a meaningful gift to the 2019 JUF Annual Campaign (minimum $36) and will have the opportunity to do so during the course of the program.

YLD and Silverstein Base Hillel are thrilled to present a new rabbi-led LEADS couples group this summer! This series is for couples seeking community and support as they navigate decisions about their Jewish lives and bring Jewish values into their relationship. The program aims to help couples discover opportunities for incorporating traditions from both partner's families into their home as they build their life together. If you would like to participate in the couples group, please indicate so at the bottom of your registration.
