Time and details to come...
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.
