Welcome to Emanuel Congregation!
We would like to extend to you a personal invitation to experience our warm and vibrant congregation.
Emanuel Congregation has served Chicago for 140 years and we continue to grow because we are committed to our values of building community, celebrating our joyous events together and comforting one another in our sorrows. For us, it's all about connection. Connection to our history and our traditions. Connection to the friends we make here and our shared contemporary focus on Jewish ritual, values and heritage. And the personal connection each of us is creating to our Jewish future.
We welcome all who wish to join us. Our diverse community includes and welcomes interfaith families and LGBT individuals and families.
If you are interested in a synagogue that prides itself on being open, genuine and inclusive; if you want a place to explore and find your own place as a Jew in the 21st Century; if you're looking for a great group of people who care and support each other, please take us up on our invitation and visit us soon.
If you have questions, please call the synagogue office during regular business hours at 773.561.5173.
