We don’t just teach Hebrew, we nurture a growing Jewish soul.

Our children learn Hebrew, Bible, holidays, and Jewish values, but included in our curriculum are sessions in art, music, dance, drama, and more. Our students experience their Jewishness through all their senses. We invite you to come and see for yourself.

The Joseph & Belle Braun Anshe Emet Religious School offers…

    • The chance to be part of a thriving, progressive–and inclusive–Conservative congregation on Chicago’s bustling north side
    • A welcoming, professional, and experienced faculty
    • A special-needs expert on staff, available to work with students with a range of gifts and challenges
    • The expertise of our esteemed clergy
