The Norton & Elaine Sarnoff Center for Jewish Genetics offers programming and education related to genetic disorders and hereditary cancers common in the Jewish community. For Jewish and interfaith couples in Illinois, the Center partners with a medical provider to offer a convenient, affordable option to receive carrier screening for Tay Sachs disease, Gaucher disease, Canavan disease, and more than 80 other Jewish and pan-ethnic disorders. Most participants can complete the program from the comfort of their own home by providing a saliva sample, with no blood draw required.

Silverstein Base Hillel

The Silverstein Base Hillel is a home for Metro Chicago Hillel students and their friends and the actual home of a rabbinic family committed to pluralism and founded on three core values: hospitality, learning, and service. Rabbi Megan and her wife Paige GoldMarche invite all Metro Chicago Hillel students and other young adults, living in or visiting the Lincoln Park area, into their home to learn, volunteer, celebrate, and of course, eat with them. Metro Chicago Hillel is fortunate to have the first Base Hillel in the country integrated into a campus Hillel.
