The Chicago Workers Circle School joined our national school network in 2015. This vibrant community of children, families, and talented educators welcomes everyone interested in Jewish cultural learning, joyous holiday celebrations, and social justice activism.
Based on the north side, our Chicago school invites students and families to become hands-on collaborators in their education. Together, we explore and strengthen our Jewish identities through music, dance, text study, art, and much more.
Our doors are open to all families, including interfaith, LGBTQ, and single parents, as well as special needs children. If you share our vision to build a shenere un besere velt far ale (“a better and more beautiful world for all” in Yiddish), there’s a place for you here!
We meet for classes twice a month on Sunday mornings, 10am-12pm, and for the occasional holiday celebration. Our home base is at Sketchpad, a shared workspace and community for innovative, mission-driven organizations, 4700 N. Ravenswood, Suite B, Chicago, IL 60640.
To ensure the safety of our children and families, we plan to continue to run the school online throughout the fall semester and will closely follow health recommendations before considering next steps for in-person programs in the spring.
Stay up-to-date on all of our activities by visiting the Chicago Workers Circle School’s Facebook page or website.
Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year is now open! Register here.
