Hebrew Seminary classes are housed in the Congregation Bene Shalom/Hebrew Association of the Deaf building, located in Skokie, Illinois, a suburb located just north of Chicago. Students have full access to an extensive library including Jewish texts and reference books.

Since the Spring of 2020, all classes have been held virtually via Zoom. We hope to have hybrid classes, in-person and online in the near future.

Chicago has a large Deaf community and, through Hebrew Seminary’s relationship with Congregation Bene Shalom, students are part of an established and active Jewish Deaf community.

The Chicago area location of Hebrew Seminary gives our students access to numerous universities and major libraries including Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership and Hebrew Theological College.
