About Us

Our Mission

JUF’s Young Leadership Division is committed to building a better Jewish community in Chicago, Israel, and around the world. We achieve this mission by raising funds for JUF agencies and initiatives, and offering a variety of educational, leadership, and social events for young adults between the ages of 22 and 40ish.

The Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago is the one organization that impacts every aspect of local and global Jewish life, providing human services for Jews and others in need, creating Jewish experiences and strengthening Jewish community connections.
