Help support your MeetupChip in
We are a diverse group of Israelis and Americans who practice their Hebrew language skills and experience Israeli culture together. Our members have a wide range of Hebrew proficiency levels, from beginners, through intermediate speakers to advanced, native, and professional users of Hebrew! As in other language groups, our meetings are conducted in this language. So in order to get the most out of belonging to the group, all members should be able to be able to put coherent sentences together and converse in Modern Israeli Hebrew. Local resources for upgrading your level of Hebrew include classes at Oakton Community College, Ulpans (JCC & CFJE), online classes, and tutoring by our members. We hope to see you at our next meeting!
The Chicago Hebrew Meetup was founded by Margalit in 2006, is about 340 members strong, experiences a steady growth since February 2010, and is second only to NY (Seattle 3rd, LA 4th, London 5th). Most of our members live in Chicagoland, others travel all the way from Milwaukee and Eau Claire, WI, and from Fort Wayne, IN to attend!
Meetings are usually on Sunday afternoon or evening, with an average of about 10 participants per meeting. Thanks to our wonderful sponsors (see column on the left) we do not charge for membership or per meeting. We have held 100 diverse meetings, including in coffee houses, restaurants, pubs, private homes, and the great outdoors!
This is a closed group so for updates on activities you need to sign up, providing members with lots of privacy. We do welcome new members! Whether you are a native speaker, a beginner, or anything in between, please send a request to join. All ages are welcome and already participate! We look forward to hearing from you soon!!!
