Presenting Chicago's tenth annual Jewish 36 under 36 list


For the tenth year in a row, Oy!Chicago is proud to partner with the JUF Young Leadership Division in recognizing our 36 Under 36 honorees! These recipients are talented, giving, forward-thinking Jewish young adults striving to make our community, city and world better a better place.

Take a look at this year's Double Chai in the Chi: Chicago's Jewish 36 Under 36 list!

The young professionals featured are noted for making a difference through their work, giving back in their free time, and earning distinction in the Jewish community and beyond. Many of this year's honorees have made a significant social impact during this crucial time - those working to build a more just society, ensuring the health and wellness of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, and creating important connections in innovative ways. 

One way to celebrate these honorees is to make a gift to the JUF Annual Campaign in recognition of this accomplishment. This year, thanks to The Hineini Initiative, all 36 Under 36 donations will be matched -doubling your impact! You'll have the opportunity to include a special message to the honoree, who will be notified of your donation.

Nominations for Double Chai in the Chi: Chicago's Jewish 36 Under 36 list open in April each year and are processed by a joint Oy!Chicago-YLD committee.

Much gratitude to the Leonard and Diane Sherman Family Foundation for supporting 36 Under 36, and for its dedication to the present and future preservation of the Jewish people.
