“I grew up on the Northside of Chicago in Uptown. I grew up around primarily Holocaust survivors, Russian Jewish refugees, and other individuals living under section eight housing. This small community had such a huge impact on my heritage and understanding of my people.
I gained such an appreciation of my Judaism within my college days with Hillel and AEPi – as of right now, I do my best to do holidays with my family when we have the time. My goal for the upcoming year is to possibly find a community similar to mine (LGBTQ+ and Jewish) so I can begin digging deeper into my own Judaism as it pertains to my intersectional identities.”
ChiTribe was founded with the goal of making Chicago Jewish life more transparent and accessible to a modern Jewish community. ChiTribe functions as a resource to connect young Jewish people with communities, events and organizations that fit their interests. By aggregating and streamlining all things Jewish via central calendar and location, ChiTribe bridges the gap between those looking for a community and the communities looking for them.
