The Jewish Café is a project of the Center for Jewish Life Studies. Café is a Sunday place, a place where intelligent, concerned individuals meet to discuss new ideas, issues, and the problems that energize and challenge our people.

Café has lost its permanent place at Northbrook JCC, when it scheduled a People's Beit Din to discuss whether  Rabbi Jack Moline is a moser (a stool pigeon, an informer, a low life, etc.).

So until we find a new permanent place, we're forced to meet whereever we can find it. Get directions; www.jewishcafe.me email: info@jewishcafe.me phone: 1 (224) 260-1354

Café is a non-denominational Jewish place of books, ideas, authors, publishers, booksellers, and readers.  Here one can teach, learn, discuss, lecture, debate and argue in English, Russian, Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, etc. regarding the foundational issues of Torah, Halakhah, Israel, Global Affairs, Philosophy, Art, Jewish history, Traditions, Literature, Money, i.e. anything of importance to our people.

Café’s host is Alexander Gendler. Alex is a former NPR “Morning Edition” commentator, syndicated columnist, and a contributing writer to the New York Times Op-Ed page. He is the publisher and owner of Varda Books and eBookshuk.com

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
