Chicago Friends of Israel is a cultural and political organization
that seeks to promote a pro-Israel message on and off the University
of Chicago campus. We attempt to represent all of the many opinions
and perspectives held by supporters of Israel. Our events, from free
food on the quads to movie screenings to speeches by journalists and
historians, are meant for everyone -- people with a long-standing love
of Israel and people who are curious about the country. This website
is meant to help you learn about our upcoming events, have a look at
our past events through videos,
or our list,
more about CFI, and
sign up for our
listhost. We hope to see you at a
CFI event soon!
CFI President Emeritus Jonathan Hirsch, President Emerita Nathalie Gorman and President Hila Mehr participated in Birthright this Winter 2007. Here are photos of them at Golan Heights in Northern Israel, at the Kotel in Jerusalem and at Independence Hall in Tel Aviv.
