Dear Friends

We hope you enjoy perusing this Celebratory Ad Book on behalf of the Installation of Rabbi Michael Schwab. Although the event became virtual, it came together in a very meaningful and beautiful way as we officially ushered in Rabbi Schwab as the Senior Rabbi of North Suburban Synagogue Beth El.

We wish to thank the Co-Chairs, Honorary Co-Chairs and Committee for their guidance and partnership in this event. We also thank the many elected officials and Jewish organizations who shared their support for this incredible milestone in the life of our congregation.

We are grateful to the many sponsors and advertisers for their generous contributions as well as our annual donors, many of whom stepped up their annual membership commitments on behalf of this occasion.

As you consider your choices for local vendors, we hope you choose to support the local businesses who are listed in this Ad Book. Their support of Beth El throughout the years is very much appreciated.

If you have any questions or want information on supporting our annual fundraising efforts, please contact Judy Berkeley, Membership & Development Director, at or 312-720-0045.

Stay safe and well!
Kim Ephraim, VP Fundraising & Development
