Judge Gerald Bender Memorial Lecture – December 16
See Programs tab for details
We are a traditional congregation offering a full range of services to the Jewish Community of Chicago and the northern suburbs.
A Traditional Synagogue
A Family Congregation
A Warm Community
As a traditional synagogue, we observe all of the customs, practices and services of an orthodox shul, but with mixed seating. We also have a daily mechitza (separate seating) minyan in our Beit Midrash.
LJCAGBI is a family congregation, a place to discover religious identification and strengthen cultural heritage; where we celebrate holidays and joyous times and find comfort during times of sorrow. It is a place to make friends and to learn through our many programs for adults and children.
Most of all we are a community. LJCAGBI members offer warmth, friendship and support. Our members are open and welcoming; it does not take long to feel right at home.
A Traditional Service with Mixed Seating or a Service with a Mechitza–The Option is Yours
Shabbat and holiday services are offered in the Main Sanctuary and in the Beit Midrash. The Main Sanctuary uses the orthodox siddur while men, women and their families worship sitting together. The mechitza minyan in the Beit Midrash takes place on Shabbat, holidays and twice daily .
