Chicago Jewish Day School has announced it will move to the New CJDS Campus in April. Fifteen years and several locations later— with over 220 students currently enrolled—the multi-denominational, progressive Jewish day school is officially moving to a home of its own in the Irving Park neighborhood.
The campus is a 2.6-acre property that includes multiple buildings with state-of-the-art classrooms, central worship and learning space, a gymnasium, and outdoor athletic and recreational facilities–all designed to enhance the school’s commitment to academic excellence and foster continued growth.
Nestled in a tree-lined urban neighborhood in a growing family-friendly community, the new campus will have easy access to both downtown and suburban living. With an environmentally friendly project in mind, CJDS consciously chose to repurpose an existing property while updating the interior to fit the educational style of its Mission and Vision and Educational Philosophy.
“Chicago Jewish Day School is the next big idea in Jewish education. Moving to our new campus will not only give us a place to call home, but the incredible space will enhance the education that we already provide on a daily basis. We are excited to enter this new chapter and can’t wait to share our new campus with the Chicago Jewish community,” said Judy Finkelstein-Taff, head of school.
With students in junior kindergarten through grade eight, Chicago Jewish Day School has a commitment to engaging and educating the next generation of Jewish learners and leaders. Through its integrated and experiential learning curriculum, CJDS is recognized for both its academic excellence and meaningful approach to Judaic Studies and Hebrew.
