Central Synagogue of Chicago Welcome To Central Synagogue of Chicago

We’re glad you found us!

Join us for spiritually inspiring services on the High Holidays, Shabbat & Yom Tov services, Torah study and social holiday events. Central Synagogue of Chicago is a small, friendly, welcoming urban Conservative Chicago Synagogue where everyone is important and everyone counts. We provide a traditional approach to Judaism with contemporary insights. Our services are traditional and egalitarian with spirited davening, inspiring hazzanut and congregational participation. Sign up on our mailing list to be informed of upcoming events.

Among Chicago Synagogues we are the only centrally located Conservative downtown loop Synagogue, however our congregants come from all over Chicagoland.

So if you …
- are new to Chicago
- just moved back to the city from the suburbs
- were here all the time but just found us...

…if you are looking for a place to call spiritual "home", know that everyone is truly welcome here.

Visitors Welcome!

If you're here on vacation, business, visiting family or simply find yourself in the downtown Chicago area, we welcome you to come and join us for Shabbat services and holiday events anytime during your stay.

We are located at 122 S. Michigan Avenue,walking distance from the Magnificent Mile, near north and downtown / loop hotels and a short taxi/bus/train ride from anywhere in central Chicago. We have many visitors who return each time they come to Chicago, enjoying our services and hospitality. So, be our guest! Come daven with us any time you are in Chicago on Shabbat or Yom Tov, and stay for Kiddush lunch.
