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.

We would like to invite you to join us on an exciting interfaith trip to Israel February 20 – March 2, 2019. The tour will bring together members and friends of Temple B’nai Israel and New England Congregational Church to share an exciting experience.  This is your opportunity to see both faith traditions through one another’s eyes, inspiring us in the beauty of the land of Israel, historically important to both Christian and Jewish tradition.
