This year, Spertus Institute celebrates an impressive milestone: 100 years!
A century of passionately advancing Jewish scholarship.
A century of training Jewish leaders and educators to skillfully serve their constituents, in our hometown of Chicago and across the globe.
A century of applying Jewish thought to critical contemporary issues, over decades of profound change, both within and beyond the Jewish world.
A century of making Jewish history, texts, literature, and learning accessible to everyone who seeks to know more.
A century of watching with pride as those we have taught and touched have in turn sparked growth and innovation in their own communities.
We plan to take this once-in-a-century occasion to look ahead, applying our 100 years of expertise, connections, knowledge, and know-how to address issues ranging from rampant antisemitism to the rise of artificial intelligence.
We passionately believe that Jewish learning has as meaning as both an academic pursuit and as a catalyst for action. Please join us as we explore its relevance to the challenges we face today and to building a stronger, more compassionate, more vibrant future.
