Join us for a worship service - there’s something for everybody.
Fridays Nights (Erev Shabbat)
Check our calendar for a schedule of Friday night services. At least once a month we have an earlier, family-friendly service. We ofen have special programs featuring guest speakers, our published authors' service honoring JRC's writers, and other wonderful services. During the summer, our Erev Shabbat Beach services are possibly the nicest way to spend a Friday night in Evanston!
Saturday Mornings (Shabbat)
- Celebrate with our B'nai Mitzvah in our light-filled sanctuary
- Take part in a congregant-led Shabbat Minyan service
- Study Torah with Rabbi Rosen
- Enjoy our monthly, family-friendly FEST (Families Enjoying Shabbat Together) service
The High Holidays bring many of us together as a larger community. In order to accommodate the increased service attendance for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we congregate in one of Evanston's historic churches, recreating it for that brief time as our own space.
We pray arm-in-arm in our outdoor sukkah, and on Simchat Torah we dance with the Torah and encircle our children within the scroll. For Hanukkah we read both the traditional blessings as well as Rabbi Rosen's Hanukkah Meditations (and rock out with our klezmer house band Heavy Shtetl). On Purim we indulge our mischievous spirits with irreverant comedy, music and a children's carnival like no other.
Celebrate and worship with us on Friday nights, Shabbat morning, holidays and simchas and enrich your spiritual life! Please check our calendar for details.
