Or Tzedek is JCUA’s teen institute for social justice. Bringing together teens from across Chicagoland and beyond, Or Tzedek takes the value of tikkun olam and dives deep. Participants will come away with an in depth understanding of Chicago’s local issues, concrete tools to organize their communities for social change, and a closer relationship to Judaism in the real world. Teens live together and explore Chicago, take action on issues such as immigration, police accountability, labor rights, food justice and more with local leaders, and engage in spiritual learning and Shabbat practice around justice. Or Tzedek is open to incoming and current high school students. Check out our past teen and parent testimonials.
