Come help make our grounds beautiful!
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.

Come out and get your hands dirty. We could use many helpers to weed, prune, and remove anything that doesn't make our temple beautiful!
