Find A Synagogue

Chicago, its suburbs, and surrounding areas are home to temples and synagogues representing all denominations of Jewish life. Some of these congregations are more than 100 years old while others have been created throughout the 20th and 21st centuries to respond to the needs of the Jewish community.
