About Oy!

Hi, and thanks for visiting Oy!Chicago. We’re glad you’re here.

Oy!Chicago – a special project of the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago – is for the socially conscious, intellectually curious and community-minded. Oy! is a living journal of personal blog posts, a showcase of up-and-coming Jewish people and ideas, a resource for local Jewish happenings and a forum for exploring and discussing Jewish life. You’re living Jewishly—or Jew-ishly—in Chicago and we want to talk about it.

Who is Oy!Chicago?
Oy! is fueled by a diverse team of Jewish contributors from all walks of Jewish life who live in Chicago or who used to but still hold Chicago in their hearts. Our staff and writers are volunteers dedicated to joining the new Jew-ish conversation here and everywhere. Interested in being a part of it? Contact us here.

There’s no Oy! without you.
Who we are isn’t nearly as important as who you are and what you have to say. We invite you to share your knowledge, opinions and personal stories and feel free to post your comments. Send us your ideas and event listings. Find us on Facebook and on Twitter to connect with other Oy! fans.
