Our Story

The Chicago Center

For the last 100 years, the Eichenstein-Zidichov rabbinic family has been a leadership presence in our community. Under their warm and caring direction, The Chicago Center was founded to build Jewish Chicago’s services, and has since grown and developed in response to our community’s needs. With its various Torah, Chessed and Refuah programs, The Chicago Center continues to enrich Jewish life and unite the full spectrum of the community.
