We are a thriving Reform congregation located in the historic Hyde Park-Kenwood neighborhood, only seven miles south of downtown Chicago. Our diverse membership comes from all across the Chicago metro area. We welcome interfaith families, LGBT members, and all those who seek an invigorating Jewish experience.
As the oldest Jewish congregation west of Ohio, we have been known throughout our history for our commitment to authentic and innovative Jewish music, quality education for adults and children, and social justice both at home and around the world. Today, we are also known as the beautiful Byzantine-inspired synagogue at Greenwood Avenue and Hyde Park Boulevard across the street from President Obama's Chicago home.
Please join us at our weekly Friday night and Saturday morning worship services, working in our organic garden, or one of our many education programs. We invite and welcome everyone to enjoy our High Holiday services in our City of Chicago Landmark sanctuary.

We are so glad you are interested in KAM Isaiah Israel. As Chicago’s oldest synagogue, our history is very important to us, and we offer a wide range of services and opportunities to become involved. Our history is steeped in music, particularly that of the renowned composer Max Janowski, our music director for over 50 years. We celebrate our musical legacy while continuing to innovate for the future.
We are a thriving, urban congregation in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. We have an urban farm on our property from which we have donated over 14,000 pounds of organic produce to nearby hot meal programs, so social justice is also very important to us.
As a Reform congregation practicing audacious hospitality, diversity is of great importance to us as well. Please view our calendar to learn more about our many upcoming events, or contact us if you have any questions or would like additional information about the synagogue.
