Visit Spertus

Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leaders presents an array of educational and cultural activities at our award-winning facility at 610 S. Michigan Avenue, directly across the street from Chicago's Grant Park, as well as at venues across the greater Chicago area, other select locations, and online.

These opportunities are designed to enable personal growth, train future leaders, and engage individuals in exploration of Jewish life.

Programming includes graduate programs and professional workshops (offered in the Chicago area, in select cities across North America, and through distance learning) and public programs, such as 
films, speakers, seminars, concerts, and exhibits (offered at the Institute’s Michigan Avenue facility, in the Chicago suburbs, and online).

There are a variety of parking options near Spertus and access is convenient by public transportation.
