Silverstein Base Hillel is a home for students, young adults, and their friends -- and the actual homes of two rabbinic couples: Rabbi Megan and Paige and Rav Ezra and Laura.  Rabbi Megan and Paige live in Lincoln Park while you can find Rav Ezra and Laura in the South Loop! Base is committed to pluralism and founded on three core values: hospitality, learning, and service.

Our regular events include Shabbat and holiday home cooked meals, classes like Tacos and Torah and Pasta and Parsha and opportunities to give back and get involved in the local community.

Learn more about all we have accomplished in our 2018 Annual Report!


Rabbi Megan and Rav Ezra and their wives Paige and Laura invite you into their beautiful homes to learn, volunteer, celebrate, and of course eat with them.  Metro Chicago Hillel is fortunate to have the first Base Hillels in the country integrated into a campus Hillel.
The Silverstein Base Hillel is made possible through generous support from the Silverstein Family, the Crown Family, Anonymous, and JUF's Breakthrough Fund.

To get involved in the Silverstein Base Hillel contact Rabbi Megan or Rav Ezra.
