Board of Directors Meeting

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.

Join us on Sunday, 5/21 1pm for our Annual Congregation Meeting. Members will be provided an update on the State of our Congregation by Temple President Jeremy Ginsberg, Financial Secretary Mark Melnicoff and Rabbi Ed Friedman. Additionally, the congregation will have the opportunity to vote on the slate of recommendations for open Board positions. Childcare will be provided.
