Spertus periodically invites Chicago's Jewish professionals to gather with colleagues at Spertus or locations throughout the Chicago area to discuss cutting-edge issues in Jewish communal life.
On August 30, 2010, Jane Shapiro, mentor in the Spertus Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Studies program, led the conversation at Spertus with a brown-bag lunch on the topic of Jewish Work and Jewish Identity.
