      Inspiring Music video filmed at chicago loop synagogue

"Am Kadosh" from the album Celestial Dialogues by Ofer Ben-Amots was performed in our sanctuary recently. Cantor Pavel Roytman sang and Bartosz Warkoczynski performed on the clarinet.

It was presented with the idea of using musical dialogue as a way to have society strive for peace and harmony.

The musicians were inspired by the beauty and grandeur of our sanctuary as a space for artistic expression.

      chicago loop synagogue featured in yachatz film series

Connecticut filmmaker Dawna Sirard is in preproduction of Yachatz, a short film inspired by her time caring for her mother, who suffered from Alzheimer’s.

To help promote the project and bring attention to the importance and significance of historic temples, Dawna is creating complimentary videos that promote the history and uniqueness of each building and its congregation, including Chicago Loop Synagogue.

To watch a video on our synagogue as part of Yachatz, please click here.

Yachatz follows Jewish real estate developer Myra Rosen as she juggles a demanding career and a mother suffering from Alzheimer’s who no longer recognizes her. Faced with the difficult decision of putting her mother in a nursing home, and her role in the demolition of a local, historic synagogue, Myra reaches an emotional crossroad that culminates in a wonderful moment of self-awareness, decency, and faith.

                                     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, some come to participate in our array of thoughtful programs or unmatched High Holiday services. No matter what causes you to engage with us, Chicago Loop Synagogue is committed to helping you find what you seek.

                 Our Building and its architectural history

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.

We were featured by the "Historic American Buildings Survey" by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
