“The Jewish Learning Loft is a warm, welcoming home for Jewish people in Chicago. I look forward to watching this special community continue to blossom.”

“Ari and Mindy are the best in the game. In Chicago, for someone in their 20's looking to keep in touch with his or her religion, it can be a challenge to find an environment that’s lively enough to strike interest.  The Goodmans and the Jewish Learning Loft cater to that population like no one else in town.”

A friend told me about Shabbat at the Jewish Learning Loft and I figured I had nothing to lose. I was blown away. The food, the decor, the joy, the people, the inspiration, everything. Now I bring my friends, and they’re bringing their friends.
