A Message from Our Leadership

Spring iii 2019_edited.jpg

David Rakofsky
President

Michelle Drucker Friedman

Congregational Cantor

We are excited to be a part of such a warm and vibrant congregation that has served the Chicago reform community for 140 years!

Emanuel Congregation continues to grow and emphasize our value of building community, celebrating our joyous events and comforting one another in our sorrows. Inspired by the richness of our collective Jewish past, we offer a contemporary focus on Jewish ritual, values, and heritage as we embrace our commitment to a tradition while creating our own individual connection to our Jewish future.

Emanuel Congregation is the place to explore what it means to be a Jew in the twenty-first century. Regardless of what reasons motivate you to pursue your religious beliefs, our goal is to have a place for everyone.
