Shabbat Service

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.  

 


 

Yom Hashoah

 

On May 4 at 7:00 p.m. our Holocaust Memorial Service will feature guest speaker Karen L. Kaplan author of Descendants of Rajgród—Learning to Forgive. The daughter of a Holocaust survivor, Karen Kaplan has learned a powerful lesson of forgiveness. She has let go of the legacy of bitterness and fear that has haunted her Jewish community following centuries of anti-semitism.
