We invite everyone to bring their shofars to the concluding service on Yom Kippur Day to help procalim liberty throughout our land at the end of the Neilah service. If you have a shofar, but are in need of lessons, please contact Rob Jury at or call 847-917-7725 to set up a lesson.


High Holy days services are held in the Stevenson High School Performing Arts Center and can accomodate many worshippers. We respectfully request your tzedakah contribution of $159.00 per person to help us defray the costs of opening our doors to embrace those who are unaffiliated and want to pray and usher in the new year. Your ticket cost will be applied as two times face value towards your 2018-2019 membership.
