Shalom! And thank you for expressing an interest in Northbrook Community Synagogue. We are glad you are considering us for the fulfillment of your spiritual needs and we stand ready to welcome you into our family. Northbrook Community Synagogue is a friendly synagogue that serves a wide range of religious, educational, and social needs. The atmosphere  is one of warmth and energy. Under the steady leadership of our Rabbi, we are becoming THE place to be for traditional Jewish observance and community.

3 becomes 1

Our Synagogue is a combination of Adas Yehuda v’Shoshana, Maine Township Jewish Congregation, and Northbrook Congregation Ezra Habonim. Through positive energy, we established Northbrook Community Synagogue. We are young, we are old, we are families, we are singles and we have lots of children. We understand the importance of community and live by that credo in everything we do.

Our Synagogue offers a multitude of activities to meet the needs of our growing and diverse membership. We have created a dynamic community which comes together for worship, learning and many diverse programs.

Shabbat morning

We have a large, friendly group with whom to share the warmth of Shabbat. Visitors are always welcome and made to feel at home. Shabbat wouldn’t be complete without the delicious lunch prepared by our Women’s Havura.


We offer minyans Sunday thru Friday mornings. Our Sunday and Tuesday morning minyan is followed by a delicious breakfast and learning.

Women’s Havura

Our Havura is the heart of synagogue life at Northbrook Community Synagogue. They offer activities for our members as well as the community.  We hope you’ll want to be a part of the Women’s Havura –where friendships are made and experiences shared.

JYC School

Our Hebrew School is now called the Jewish Youth Connection and offers a new take on Jewish learning with an innovative Hebrew language program for children. Shoshana  Axler, our dedicated and enthusiastic Principal, has some new and exciting programs for children from pre-school to high school age.
