Back from its COVID-related hiatus, Spertus Institute again presents Chicago’s Jewish Community Networking Night, a free annual event for Jewish community professionals, lay leaders, consultants, and volunteers.

A favorite evening on Chicago’s community calendar, Networking Night brings participants together to mingle, build contacts across organizations, enjoy each other’s company, and learn something new to add to their professional toolkits.

The evening has become known for seeding new partnerships, spurring program ideas, matching qualified candidates to key positions, and fostering lasting connections.

Special Guest
This year’s special guest is Becca Barish, Second City and iO alum, who will add an improv twist to this year’s event.

Community Connector Award
We are thrilled to present this year’s award to the Harriet and Maurice Lewis Family Summer Intern Program (LSIP) for matching a generation of Jewish college students with work/study experiences that serve the Jewish community.

A true example of “yes, and” thinking, LSIP matches nonprofits and businesses with talented young people whose fresh skills and innovative ideas make them great additions to staff teams. Relationships often last well beyond the summer, fostering job growth and building a talent pipeline for our community. LSIP is a program of the Jewish United Fund and The Hillels of Illinois.
