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, photos, or our list, generally learn more about CFI, and sign up for our listhost. We hope to see you at a CFI event soon!
