Mission Statement Chabad of the Loop, Gold Coast and Lincoln Park is a nonprofit outreach organization committed to reawakening Jewish life within a person. CJL has locations in the Loop, Gold Coast, Lincoln Park and South Loop.
Our work is geared to building healthier communities in an inclusive organization without regard to a person's background, affiliation or level of observance.
Philosophy All Jews are "members." There are no membership fees, tickets, board members, etc. Our philosophy rejects the insular, segregated self-perception of organizations and communities. We strongly believe in an interactive community while maintaining the uniqueness of each individual. All are welcome.
