Am Yisrael offers extensive learning at all levels and abilities.

Our School of Jewish Studies (SJS) is for our members’ children, grades kindergarten through high school, with supplemental programming for pre-schoolers, co-sponsored by jBaby Chicago.

SJS meets on Sundays from 9:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. and Wednesdays from 4:15 p.m.-6:15 p.m. for grades three through seven.

SJS meets only on Sundays from 9:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. for Kindergarten through grade two and grades eight through twelve.  Kindergarten classes dismiss at 10:15 a.m.

Approximately once a month we have Family Shabbat Services on Shabbat mornings for Kindergarten through grade seven students and their families from 10:15 a.m.-11:30 a.m. followed by kiddush lunch.
