Our Story

Hebrew Language Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, founded on June 27, 2018 with the mission to increase knowledge, awareness and use of the Hebrew language in social and cultural contexts.

Hebrew Language Society was founded by members of the Greater Chicago Hebrew Language Meetup, a volunteer group that was established in December 2006 and currently has more than 500 listed members. Hebrew Meetup volunteers organize 40-50 Hebrew focused events per year, and are now sponsored by Hebrew Language Society.


Our Objective

We seek to introduce our participants to the best of Israeli culture, overcoming language barriers and sharing what we love and value in the language, culture and people of Israel.
