Mazal Tov to all of this year’s recipients!
Every year, the Young Leadership Division of the Chicago JUF and OyChicago! work together to recognize 36 young adults who are making a difference. This year’s recipients include our very own Executive Director Rebecca Joey Schwab! ChiTribe wants to wish a huge Mazal Tov to all of this year’s accomplished individuals. Donate to ChiTribe today to support Rebecca and ChiTribe’s mission of making Jewish life far-reaching and sustainable.
Rebecca Joey Schwab is 36 Under 36
Rebecca has made it her mission to help people find and create a strong Jewish community in Chicago.
She founded ChiTribe, an organization that brings groups of young adults together in “clusters,” programs, and more to foster friendships and lifelong Jewish commitment. ChiTribe connects participants to each other and to local Jewish organizations. Described as “kind, welcoming, and giving,” she inspires connections through a weekly email newsletter featuring sign-ups for events. She scours the website of every local Jewish organization to make sure she is letting others know how to get and stay involved.
She also serves as the project lead for Mindfulness and Wellness programs at the Orot Center for New Jewish Learning, where she builds programs to help young Jews stay healthy physically and mentally. Additionally, she taught religious school for two years, tutored B’nai mitzvah students, and hosted countless Zoom programs to keep people connected during the pandemic.
