Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state’s efforts to curtail the spread of the virus, we have opted not to host our Sesquicentennial House of Worship Awards Luncheon on September 26, but will, instead, hold an invitation for those to attend the next gathering, should our public health officials clear our path to do so in 2021. We regret having to cancel this important gathering of Illinois houses of worship, as it has become one of our favorite events. Letters confirming this will be sent out shortly to all who have applied.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our lives, many teachers, parents, and students across the state are faced with and coping with new learning options and techniques. Some schools are using distance learning exclusively while others are using a mixed blend of online and in-person classroom settings. Other parents are opting for homeschooling their children. Whatever option you choose for the education of your children, the ISHS would like to share just a few of the many teaching history resources that are available on the Internet.
