North Suburban Synagogue Beth El


Prayer is our humble answer to the inconceivable surprise of living. It is all we can offer in return for the mystery by which we live. It is gratefulness that makes the soul great.” – Abraham Joshua Heschel, God in Search of Man

A Place to Pray

Worship at Beth El is spirited and meaningful.  We support  a minyan each morning and evening, every day of the year. Shabbat and all Jewish holidays, both major and minor, are celebrated in ways that encourage participation by all of our congregants.  Through these services, generally led by congregants, we provide a supportive community to those who wish to fulfill the mitzvah of daily prayer and to those saying Kaddish or observing a Yahrzeit.

We invite you to join our Beth El Family as we come together to worship and to celebrate and share our Jewish faith and heritage.

Please take a moment to browse our website to see how we celebrate Shabbat, Festivals and holidays and life cycle events.

Our Ritual Standards and Practices

As a member of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, we are affiliated with the Conservative Movement and follow the ritual practices that are consistent with Conservative Halacha (Jewish law) and standards.

We understand that you may have questions about these rituals. To encourage full participation and to help ensure that you feel comfortable at Beth El,  we are completing an updated summary of our Ritual Standards and Practices.

Additionally, our Hazzan is completing tutorials and tropes for you to be able to easily access here These will be your individual resources. You can choose what and when you want to study. You can learn at your own pace. We are very excited about this project.
