Young Adult Division (YAD)
The Young Adult Division (YAD) of Anshe Emet synagogue is composed of Jewish adults in their 20's and 30's from Lakeview, Lincoln Park, and other areas of the city and suburbs of Chicago.
If you're looking for a spiritual outlet, a place to learn, a way to get involved in the Jewish community, or a welcoming community to make new friends, YAD has something for you!
To keep up to date on current events, please join our Facebook group!
We are so grateful for each person that is part of our community and
attends YAD events. Anshe Emet has launched a new membership category
specifically designed for YAD, and we hope you will consider giving back
to our community and becoming a YAD member of Anshe Emet Synagogue.
Through your support, you will enable us to continue to provide Shabbat
and holiday community, monthly community nights, sports, learning,
social programs, and more. You may choose to become a member for any
amount that feels comfortable and, as always, all YAD events will be
open to all Jewish young adults. Thank you for being part of our
YAD Membership Applications are available online at http://www.ansheemet.org/YAD_Membership_Application/
