As Jews all over the world prepare to welcome the year 5775, at Spertus Institute we are starting a new season with some of the most innovative programming in our 90-year history.
At Spertus Institute, we believe that arts and culture are essential to Jewish life and learning. Powerful first-hand encounters with original artifacts — as well as live performances and first-person presentations — offer compelling ways to both understand the Jewish past and address the pressing issues of today.
Spertus Institute proudly welcomes four new members to our Board of Trustees. These impressive individuals are committed to the continuity of Chicago’s Jewish community and have some clear ideas about how to foster a vibrant Jewish future.
It is an honor to see Spertus Institute faculty member and longtime friend Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern featured in The New York Times!
The 2014 One Book | One Community selection is David Laskin's The Family, a memoir that follows the author's amazing ancestors across the tumultuous sweep of the 20th century.
For all of us at Spertus Institute, it's a pleasure to see Chicago architect and designer Amy Reichert profiled in The New York Times. Her work is currently on view in our lobby in an intimate one-woman exhibit titled Amy Reichert: Reinventing Judaica.
It is with great sadness that we announce that longtime Spertus Institute donor and friend Dr. William H. Barrows has died after a fiercely waged battle with brain cancer.
It's our pleasure to share an ELI talk (essentially a Jewish TED talk) by Spertus President Dr. Hal M. Lewis. In it, he proposes an unexpected key to success.
