Vibrant Judaism, Welcome Home
With its unique blend of vibrance and warmth, Temple Beth-El welcomes the surrounding community to a once in a lifetime celebration.
Few congregations have the honor of witnessing Chicago, and American history over such a streak of time.
"To be the inheritors of such a rich history -- one that navigated the Post-Civil War Era, both World Wars, the emergence of Jewry from the Holocaust, the creation of the state of Israel, through to our modern day -- our temple has prayed many a prayer, and sung many a melody to deliver those prayers," Rabbi Sidney Helbraun of Temple Beth-El, points out. "This evening fills us with so much pride about this beautiful community, and our good fortune, and we are delighted to share this celebration with our community."
