Spirituality/Mindfulness/Meditation – Try It Now!

Are you interested in spirituality? Do you want a life of more mindfulness? Does meditation interest you? Are you curious about the link between the classic types of meditation and the core Kabbalistic principles that underpin Jewish spirituality?

Parent Survival Guide – Big Conversations with Little Children: Addressing Questions, Worries and Fe

To raise a child is to constantly expect the unexpected, as they really DO say (and ask) the darndest things! JCC Chicago invites parents to enjoy a FREE, virtual author talk, with Dr. Lauren Starnes, an expert in the field of early childhood, who will share about her new book, Big Conversations with Little Children: Addressing Questions, Worries and Fears. Dr. Starnes’s insightful and timely guide tackles those “tough topics” – the ones that often cause adults to pause, silence the child, or deflect the conversation entirely due to our own discomfort. These include topics around family, illness and death, social issues, and upheaval and violence. This program is geared towards parents of children who are infants – 10 years old.

Open House & Sunday School Try Out

We welcome non-members to join us - there is no expectation of a commitment by coming to this program. Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School by visiting their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in Kindergarten through Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more.

Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and no commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with a belief in human responsibility and equality – for us, it’s about people, not prayer.

Open House & Sunday School Try Out

We welcome non-members to join us - there is no expectation of a commitment by coming to this program. Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School by visiting their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in Kindergarten through Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more.

Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and no commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with a belief in human responsibility and equality – for us, it’s about people, not prayer.

Open House & Sunday School Try Out

We welcome non-members to join us - there is no expectation of a commitment by coming to this program. Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School by visiting their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in Kindergarten through Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more.

Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and no commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with a belief in human responsibility and equality – for us, it’s about people, not prayer.

Open House & Sunday School Try Out

We welcome non-members to join us - there is no expectation of a commitment by coming to this program. Are you thinking about how to expose your children to Jewish culture and identity? Your family is welcome to ‘try out’ our Sunday School by visiting their grade’s class for the day. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation holds weekly Sunday School classes for students in Kindergarten through Confirmation. Each class has a well-defined curriculum, covering topics in Jewish history, literature and culture. We encourage children to value their Jewish identity and to think for themselves. Our whole school -- students, teachers, and families -- come together to celebrate Jewish holidays as well as for special programs on Jewish culture, community service activities and more.

Everyone is welcome at our events so you can meet us for yourself — no charge and no commitment. Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Jewish identity and culture by replacing worship with a belief in human responsibility and equality – for us, it’s about people, not prayer.
