The Ideas Incubator

The Ideas Incubator aims to inspire and expand the ecology of Jewish education in greater Chicago. We are here to support Chicago Jewish professionals by offering a multitude of professional development opportunities. Each experience will offer a new paradigm of thinking and innovative ways to enhance you personally and professionally.

Incubator Workshops

Each workshop brings together educators and leaders from supplementary schools, camps, synagogues, community organizations, and youth groups from across the denominational and organizational landscape in greater Chicago. These workshops will introduce high-level learning from leading educational innovators, theorists, and practitioners. Over the last 5 years, these events have been the core of the Incubator's activity, and are highly desired by Chicago area Jewish educators.


At this time, with restrictions on public gatherings, upcoming Incubator Workshops have been postponed. Please click here to be notified when future experiences are scheduled.
