Uncovered & Rediscovered: Stories of Jewish Chicago is a project of Spertus, Chicago’s center of Jewish learning and culture. You are invited to contribute your own personal stories of Chicago Jewish life, which are then pinned to a custom interactive map of the greater Chicago area. This “memory map” is accessible online and as part of an interactive Chicago Jewish History display at Spertus. Please add your own stories and help form a dynamic, evolving record of Jewish life in the Windy City.
On display in the ground floor vestibule of the award-winning Spertus building, Uncovered & Rediscovered: Stories of Jewish Chicago tells tales of Chicago’s Jewish pioneers and politicians, artists and anarchists, authors and entrepreneurs, and even Jewish boxers.
