Tikkun Chicago is not your typical Hebrew High
experience. You can take classes in a variety of topics that best fit
your interests and schedule, like Hebrew, Jewish text, teen philanthropy, arts
and more. Last trimester I took a class called Tikkun B’Ir where we
volunteered around Chicago.
I loved volunteering with Tikkun Chicago! I really
appreciated that through the class I was able to volunteer at a variety of
places that help people in all sorts of ways. We also learned why we were
volunteering and what kind of impact we would be making. My favorite
organizations were JUF's Uptown Cafe and Cradles to Crayons - they were
different experiences, but through them I provided people in need with food and
clothes for their children. I earned community service hours and enjoyed the work
I was doing with friends.
This upcoming trimester there will be classes on Climate Justice, Living in a Universal Society, Cooking and Hebrew. Classes are open to Jewish teens in the Chicago area, so sign up with friends from camp or school!
