J-Life is an organization committed to providing innovative opportunities for meaningful Jewish self-expression for Chicago land’s Russian Jews. We provide this opportunity through insightful classes, special events, and heritage trips organized and led by world-class Jewish educators.
Weekly Classes: J-Life’s weekly seminars and presentations hosted in different locations throughout Chicagoland foster the development of a deeper understanding of Jewish history, philosophy, and identity.
Special Events: J-Life organizes Shabbatons, alumni trips, and get-aways within the U.S. as well as thought provoking guest lectures given by outstanding Jewish educators.
Heritage Trips: J-Life has been leading fantastic trips to Israel each summer since 2008. Over the last several years we have expanded to running Jewish heritage trips in Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Poland.
At J-Life, we believe that an educated Jewish people, is a powerful Jewish people!
Join us in making an amazing and vibrant community!
