The Jewish Enrichment Center is an innovative Jewish center for afterschool and Sunday enrichment in Hyde Park, Chicago. We partner with children in long-term, project-based Jewish exploration, in a warm, Hebrew- and text-rich environment. All Jewish children are welcome and valued at the Jewish Enrichment Center – unaffiliated, congregational, and day school families alike.

We currently enroll infants through Grade 4, growing one grade each year.
