About Chicago Loop Synagogue
Chicago Loop Synagogue was founded in 1929 to serve the religious needs of those whose business activities brought them downtown. Since then, a growing residential community has made it the home synagogue for those who live downtown as well.
Whether you work or live downtown, Chicago Loop Synagogue is your spiritual home.
As the only synagogue in the downtown area, we serve Jews with many differing needs. Some come to pray at our three daily services, some come to eat our kosher lunches, and some come to participate in our array of thoughtful programs or unmatched High Holiday services. No matter what causes you to walk through our doors, Chicago Loop Synagogue is committed to helping you find what you seek.
By providing a convenient place for daily worship, we help Jews make congregational prayer a regular part of their business day, as well as to observe Yahrzeits and to recite the Kaddish prayers during periods of mourning. While the daily worship is Traditional with separate seating, we have mixed seating on the High Holidays in response to the needs of our residential community.
