Walk & Talk

An RJD summer health initiative for getting your steps-in while walking & talking with other community members!

We've all heard our family use the term "давай прогуляемся" AKA lets go for a walk (and talk). Anyone can join us at anytime along our walk and the goal is to get a light-exercise at a leisurely pace without even noticing. Last year participants walked roughly four miles in a span of two hours and practiced their Russian!

Water, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Pets are welcome but please pick-up after your own pet and make sure to have a leash! We advise all participants to meet us at the beginning of the walk to stretch their legs. Breaks will be taken regularly throughout the event. Have questions? Reach out to Alex Kislov directly!

JUF’s COVID policies require that all individuals age 5 and over participating in in-person events/programs have completed their initial series of COVID 19 vaccinations.

Russian-speaking Jewish Division, JUF programs are funded, in part, by Genesis Philanthropy Group.

Greenfield Summer Institute: The Jewish Family Across Time and Space

What does Jewish law say about the obligations of parents, children, husbands, and wives? How do Jewish rituals help maintain families? How have kinship bonds evolved from the Hebrew Bible to the present? Join us at the 2022 Greenfield Summer Institute as historians, social scientists, and scholars of religion gather to explore the changing nature of Jewish families and their interactions with the larger societies they inhabit. Speakers will discuss such wide-ranging subjects as race and diversity in the family context; dating, marriage, and sex in the Orthodox world; the portrayal of Jewish families in film and television; and one extended Jewish family’s role in defeating Nazi forces in North Africa during World War II. With topics ranging from the Israelite cult of dead kin to the “myth” of the Jewish wedding, this year’s Greenfield will offer a richer understanding of the phrase le-Dor va-Dor—from generation to generation.

Nurturing Your LGBTQ+ Child in Jewish Spaces

Are you a parent, caregiver, guardian, or cherished elder of a child or young person who is part of the Jewish LGBTQ+ community? Do you want to learn more about how to celebrate them as they move through Jewish settings and milestones, and connect with other families doing the same? Moving Traditions, Keshet, and Response for Teens have teamed up to host three sessions for those parenting Jewish LGBTQ+ children and teens:

Session 1: Wednesday, June 29 from 7- 9pm;

Session 2: Wednesday, July 13 from 7- 9pm;
Through the framework of uplifting authentic relationships and accountability, learn about the importance of allyship, equality and how to combat microaggressions and queerphobia in family and in the community.

Session 3: Wednesday, August 3 from 7- 9pm;
Jewish lifecycle events have been historically gendered. Learn how Judaism is and should be a space to bend these gender norms and bring home tools to provide a place for your child to bring their full selves.

All sessions will include opportunities for Q&A, and for community-building among family members.

Sessions will meet in-person and virtually (hybrid) at Sketchpad, 4411 N Ravenswood Suite 300 Chicago, IL 60640, and will have a virtual option. Each session is free to attend but registration is required.

Online Program | Breaking the Silence: Native American Boarding Schools

Between 1869 and the 1960s, hundreds of thousands of Native American children were forcibly abducted from their homes and families and placed in more than 350 government-funded, and often church-run, Indian Boarding schools. These children were subjected to horrendous conditions, suffering physical, sexual, cultural, and spiritual abuse and torture.
They were banned from speaking their Native languages, from traditional and cultural practices, and stripped of traditional clothing, hair, and personal belongings. The express intent was to implement cultural genocide through removal and “reprogramming” Native children to carry out systematic destruction of Native cultures and communities. Many of these children never returned home, and their fates have yet to be accounted for by the U.S. government.
Join us for a poignant conversation with Dr. Samuel Torres, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS), as he highlights and addresses the history and ongoing trauma created by the U.S. Indian Boarding School Policy.
Torres is expected to be accompanied by a boarding school survivor. There will be opportunities for questions after the discussion.
