Respecting Campus Heritage

Chicago Jewish Day School, New Campus, Chicago, IL

Chicago Jewish Day School has made its long-anticipated move to a new campus in Chicago’s Irving Park neighborhood, a permanent home that includes state-of-the-art classrooms, central worship and learning spaces, and extensive athletic and recreational facilities designed to enhance the school’s commitment to academic excellence.

The multi-denominational, progressive Jewish day school’s new campus spans 2.6 acres of buildings and playlots, encompassing most of a full city block. The renovated facilities feature a library and media center, gym, classrooms, science and art laboratories, and a dedicated beit midrash, which serves as a central gathering space for services and other school-wide activities.

The new campus is a combination of old and new, as we repurposed an existing property, but added all the bells and whistles one would want in a school setting. We are thrilled to now be able to house this rich school experience in a state-of-the-art facility that enhances the education of our students, producing empowered and engaged citizens.

-Anat Geva, president of the CJDS Board of Directors.
