Public Program Survey and Focus Groups



Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership — in coordination with the Jewish United Fund — is working on ways to offer interesting, relevant programs for adults across the Greater Chicago Jewish Community. We are starting by asking for your input about program types, topics, and settings. There are two ways to tell us what you think.

Take an Online Survey

Responses to this survey will help Jewish organizations across the Chicago area design and present meaningful programs that serve your needs. The survey is open to adults in the greater Chicago region. It will take 10-15 minutes to complete. All information is confidential. Survey participants will be entered into a raffle for one of several $100 Amazon gift certificates. This survey closes on January 11.

Or Participate in a Focus Group

Do you live in the greater Chicago area? Are you interested in Jewish topics but rarely attend a program or take advantage of a local opportunity to learn more? We want you to tell us why.

Please join us at one of four focus groups. Participants will receive $50 for participating as well as lunch or dinner. To register, select a group below. You'll be prompted to enter a password. The password (for any of the four groups) is focus2016.
