Chicago Curriculum & Activism

Designed for students ages 5-13, our curriculum integrates all aspects of Jewish culture, including holidays, lifecycle events, history and immigration, Jewish communities around the world, and key Jewish heroes. Literature, art, music, food, and languages – Hebrew and Yiddish – are a part of everything we do.

When they’re not in the classroom, our students are out in the world taking action for social and economic justice. They share the Workmen’s Circle’s 100+ year commitment to activism – a commitment that we weave into every layer of our school community. Together, our school families participate in advocacy campaigns at the local, state and national level, generating social change in our community and beyond.
