First Day of School
Temple B'nai Israel is a small, independent, family-oriented, congregation, serving Jews in the far western suburbs of Chicago for over 100 years. Located near I-88 on the west side of Aurora, the membership comes to us from the counties of DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Will, and DeKalb. We are a "Hamish" synagogue: welcoming and nurturing to everyone, including those in interfaith marriages. Read more about us here.
