Jerome Eberle has also contributed to several different publications, including writing reviews for Booklist Magazine, a journal dedicated to book reviews. In addition to his involvement with Catholic charities, he supports Friends of the Chicago River.

Friends of the Chicago River is an organization created in 1979 to help improve the quality and health of the Chicago River. By looking after the river system, the group helps to improve the quality of life for those that live, work, and play around the River. The efforts of Friends of the Chicago River impact the entire 156-mile span of the river and help to restore the habitats in and around the waterway.

Friends of the Chicago River works together with community groups and municipalities to benefit the river and keep the area prospering and ecologically sound. The Friends group has made a number of improvements along the river, including the McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum, a landmark designed to celebrate the construction of Chicago’s movable bridges and provide tours of the historic bridgehouse.
