About 5959



5959 is a Jewishly-based cultural and community destination to serve Chicago with programming, speakers, panels, author events, and more. 5959 is based out of Emanuel Congregation Chicago in Edgewater, but builds partnerships around the city to help people find community and connection through events, talks, workshops, performing arts and other event offerings.
