Shavuot begins next Thursday night - chag Shavuot Sameach! Don't forget to make an eruv tavshilin before candle lighting on Thursday.

Although Young Israel of West Rogers Park remains closed due to the coronavirus, when one is davening at home, it is proper to daven at the time when minyanim would ordinarily be taking place. The times listed on the left reflect when minyanim would be taking place at Young Israel.
