Last year I saw a staged reading here of Winter Miller's 'In Darfur" in conjunction with the American Refugee Committee. It was the play's introduction in Chicago (before it was presented by TimeLine Theatre) and this was a wonderful venue in which to see it. The play and the discussion that followed still resonate with me. Spertus is definitely worth checking out as a place to see interesting programs on important subjects.

I walk by Spertus every workday. I rarely see anyone walk in or out. I can't believe this place is still being funded by anyone and its difficult to understand how it can justify its continued existence.

The organization made the completely irresponsible decision to build a $55 MIllion
facility that is relatively useless from a programmatic perspective. As it is, the building is either closed or devoid of activity most days.

Looking at their website, there seems to be almost no programming to speak of anyways. Despite its claims to offer innovative Jewish cultural and educational programming, events are few and far between. It seems to be little more than an expensive rental facility for parties and corporate events and a glorified gift shop.

The Great!
