Temple B'nai Israel is a small, independent, family-oriented, congregation, serving Jews in the far western suburbs of Chicago for over 100 years. Located near I-88 on the west side of Aurora, the membership comes to us from the counties of DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Will, and DeKalb. We are a "Hamish" synagogue: welcoming and nurturing to everyone, including those in interfaith marriages. Read more about us here.

Welcome to Rabbi Ami Adler
In June the members of Temple B'nai Israel voted overwhelmingly to hire Amitai Adler as our new Rabbi. He is first and foremost, a teacher, and will provide us with immense insight into Judaism. Learn more about Rabbi Adler here.
Free School ... Our Religious School is going to be the best! The Religious Education Committee is hard at work planning a great year.
We are continuing our Free School (no dues or tuition, just the workbook fee) for children entering PreK, K and Grade 1 for two years. Children entering Grade 2 would be free, but only for 1 year. If you would like more information, please contact our office at 630-892-2450.
Raising your children Jewish in a predominately Christian environment is hard. It truly takes a village when your kids have few Jewish friends. Temple B'nai Israel can make it easy to enjoy being Jewish. It's a wonderful place for your child's religious education. Click here to learn more.
