Join us for a presentation by Annette Gendler, sharing the backstory of her mother-in-law’s experience as a hidden child in France during the Holocaust and what it took to make this story into a children’s book. This will include the research into the history of hidden Jews in France, the people who made it possible, as well as images and impressions from the family’s trip to the village where the mother-in-law had been hidden.

Annette Gendler is the author of the children's book "Natalie and the Nazi Soldiers," the guide: "How to Write Compelling Stories from Family History," and the memoir "Jumping Over Shadows", the true story of a German-Jewish love that overcame the legacy of the Holocaust. She teaches workshops on memoir writing, and she and her family have been members of Chicago Loop Synagogue for more than 20 years.

$18 to attend ($10 for security guard, $8 for the event). Light refreshments will be provided.

                                  Help Support Israel now!

Israel needs our help like never before, and to make sure we get voices heard and our funding to the right places, here is a list of organizations that are supporting Israel either through donations or through legislative action. While this list has been compiled from reliable sources, there are also a lot of scam artists taking advantage of the situation, so please thoroughly research any organization you decide to support.

                                     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.

                      Have your simcha at our Synagogue!

A three-story high stained glass window, which has been called the biggest and best work of its kind in the US, if not the world, will be a magnificent backdrop for your simcha.

Impress your guests with the near-perfect acoustics in our soaring 535-seat sanctuary, upgraded social hall and full kosher kitchen.  For more information, click here.  To book a showing, click here or call 312-346-7370.
