Northbrook Community Synagogue was founded in 2011 following the merger of three storied and successful synagogues in the north shore Chicago area. Formed from Adas Yehuda v’Shoshana (or AYSH) of Northbrook, Northbrook Congregation Ezra Habonim and Maine Township Jewish Congregation of Des Plaines, Northbrook Community Synagogue was founded with strength in numbers and in spirit. In 2012, Northbrook Community Synagogue hired its first Rabbi to lead the congregation and Rabbi Braun has been with the congregation to this day. Our building, originally home to AYSH, was completed in 1997. Our building is dedicated in honor of Rabbi Julius and Rose Weisbach and Milt and Gladys Goldstein. Thanks to the tireless work of our small but dedicated staff, the building has never looked better. It is a flexible space that lends itself both to the holy endeavors of worship and Jewish practice, and to community and private events. Our ability to host amazing events both large and small continues to grow and become more streamlined. We are a congregation today of approximately two hundred and fifty member families and still growing.


Thanks to all those who came out for the Opening Event for the JYC Sunday/Hebrew School we had a blast exploring our local apiary!
