                                A Letter from our president

Shalom my friends,

Although we are certainly hearing enough bad news right now, two of our congregants have stepped forward to help anyone who is at high risk, self-isolating, or ill. They are both affiliated with the University of Chicago; one as a teacher and one as a graduate student in science, and they are both in a low-risk group for complications from coronavirus. In addition to delivering groceries or running errands, they have professional programming and IT experience from their time at Harvard, so they can also handle most tech-related needs such as converting to remote communication or teaching people how to use Skype or Zoom. If you or anyone you know is in need of their services, please contact us at  If you would also like to volunteer, either by providing services or by making phone calls to people who are quarantined at home, let us know. 

In addition, due to the evolving health crisis and upon guidance from the Chicago Rabbinical Council  (see letter below) and our health authorities, we will be suspending all minyanim and programs until further notice. However, since this situation is changing so quickly please check our website,, for details on specific services before you decide to attend. 

Sincerely yours,

Lee Zoldan


Chicago Loop Synagogue


                                     Our Vision and Identity

Whether you work or live downtown, Chicago Loop Synagogue is your spiritual home.


As the largest synagogue in the downtown area, we serve Jews with many differing needs. Some come to pray at our three daily services, some come to eat our kosher lunches, and some come to participate in our array of thoughtful programs or unmatched High Holiday services. No matter what causes you to walk through our doors, Chicago Loop Synagogue is committed to helping you find what you seek.

                                            Our Building

The synagogue is also an architectural marvel which is regularly featured on architecture tours.

Among other features, it contains the magnificent Abraham Rattner stained glass artwork which takes up almost the entire Eastern facade of the Synagogue. Rattner lithographs are located in our Beit Midrash as well as the entry to the Social Hall. The Hands of Peace by Henri Azaz crowns the entrance to the Synagogue.

                      How to Visit Chicago Loop Synagogue

Our address is:
