Young Israel of West Rogers Park wishes members and friends a Shabbat Shalom

This Shabbat is Shabbat Mevarchim, announcing the upcoming month of Tevet. We begin including the prayer for rain, v’tain tal u-matar, in the 9th blessing of the Amidah on Tuesday evening, December 4, at Ma’ariv.

Best wishes for a Chanukah Sameach!  Chanukah begins on Sunday evening.  For more information about Chanukah, click here.

Safety at Shul
At this time of heightened concern about the safety of Jews throughout the country, Young Israel of West Rogers Park has introduced a locked-door policy, which went into effect following the massacre in Pittsburgh. The Shul will make every effort to position a volunteer by the front door to safely welcome friends and members to our davening, classes, meetings, and other programs.  If you come to Shul at one of these times and see that a greeter is not present, please knock for entry.  Thanks for your understanding.
