The Chicago Mitzvah Campaign was developed to provide help and support to members of the entire Chicago Jewish community. We offer our services when people need them most, at times of frailty, illness, infirmity, and loss. Our programs assist individuals with information, social support and material aid, and avail them of spiritual counsel, Jewish traditions and observances.

“Unbelievably convenient, helpful and reassuring.”
When older people retire from work and slow down from their hobbies and their busy family responsibilities, they need to fill their days with productive, stimulating enjoyable activities. The CMC senior center offers some amazing programs and classes, and the atmosphere is always warm and welcoming.

“THEIR SUPPORT WAS LIKE A MIRACLE FOR ME”
INTENSIVE CASE ADVOCACY AND SUPPORT
When I first met Rabbi Jaworowski of the CMC, I was in a very difficult situation. I have always loved collecting books, but at this stage of my life, my favorite hobby was getting me in serious trouble. Almost the entire living space of my apartment was jammed from floor to shoulder height with towering mountains of thousands of books, all groaning under their own weight.

“THE SENSE OF REASSURANCE WAS PRICELESS”
HOSPITAL VISITATION AND PATIENT ADVOCACY
When my wife was going through her end-of-life illness, it was an overwhelming period for her and for our family. The CMC’s expert assistance and advocacy was enormously helpful and reassuring.
