(www.oychicago.com), Esther realizes it’s good to be queen, Adam explains why humor and anti-Semitism are a match made in controversy, Paul has some advice on whom to give the wedding blessings to and Andy reflects on the time he and his wife flipped their lives upside down.
Stay tuned for more this week!

Introduction

Oy!Chicago is for the socially conscious, intellectually curious, community-minded. Oy! is home to articles, blog posts, event listings and ongoing discussions about Jewish life. You’re living Jewishly—or Jew-ishly—in Chicago and we want to talk about it.

Who is Oy!Chicago?
The Oy! team is made up of a a mish mash of professional (and not so professional) Jews, employees of the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago and contributors dedicated to joining the new Jew-ish conversation.

There’s no Oy! without you.
Who we are isn’t nearly as important as who you are and what you have to say. So we invite you to share your knowledge, opinions and personal stories and feel free to post your comments. Send us your ideas and event listings—if you’re interested, we are too! Join us on Facebook and on Twitter to connect with other Oy! fans.
