What I find special about ChiTribe is that it attracts a group of people I have not seen at other Jewish events in Chicago and how well it is organized. There seems to have been a gap in Chicago that ChiTribe is able to fill. I appreciate the mixture of events and different ways to get involved.

ChiTribe has provided my link to the outside world during the pandemic. In the tumult of intensely loneliness living alone, and the fear and confusion of working in an industry kneecapped by an economic collapse, ChiTribe became a constant presence with weekly virtual Shabbat cluster dinners. I’ve made new friends and strengthened friends with those I’d had before. I’ve felt just as, if not more, connected to the Jewish community as before this entire crisis. ChiTribe enabled that.

MISSION

shore club happy hour

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. Find Your Tribe. 


ChiTribe Creates Community During COVID

Chitribe has been a great way to connect, in person and now virtually, with new friends. They have a lot of events of different types and sizes, and have provided an important link to the Chicago Jewish community.

Virtual Gamenight

After 18 weekly game night,s ChiTribe is excited to continue virtual game nights monthly. During the pandemic, weekly game nights provided a much-needed distraction from the crazy world we are living in. We want to continue making events that bring the tribe together and make these difficult times easier.
