For the ninth 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.
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. This year, many honorees have gone the extra mile during COVID-19, working on the front lines, creating community in innovative ways and ensuring access to basic necessities.
One way to celebrate these honorees is to make a gift to the JUF Annual Campaign in recognition of this accomplishment. Any donation will be matched up to $36, doubling your impact and benefiting those in need in our community! 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.
