  • Silverstein Base Hillel Chicago 858 West Wrightwood Avenue Chicago, IL, 60614 United States (map)

Introducing FIRST BASE WITH SVARA, an afternoon of learning for all students and young adults in the Chicago area to build community, dive deep into a text, and have a lot of subversive fun along the way! In this historical moment when so many of us are alienated from our traditions, come participate a program that radically redefines who has access and ownership to Jewish wisdom (spoiler: Everybody)! All you need to know is your alef-bet, and if you don’t yet, click on the registration link and read on for opportunities to learn.

Join us on Sunday, March 4 from 12 - 3pm* 

Come anytime after 11:15 for a light brunch and shmoozing!
The program will start promptly at 12.
*Please plan to attend the full three hours of learning.

If you've never learned with SVARA: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva, this is a great opportunity to get a taste! And if you're a SVARA regular, take this opportunity to get to know Silverstein Base Hillel!

All identities and levels of familiarity with both text study and queerness are welcome.

Space is limited and this is gonna be a hot one, so REGISTER NOW:
