JRC is a welcoming, inclusive and vibrant community located just north of the city of Chicago in Evanston, Illinois.

By becoming a member, you join a congregation with a 50 year history and a commitment to Jewish practices, Reconstructionism, lifelong learning, social justice and a sustainable environment.

With your membership, you'll not only benefit from the traditional services that come with belonging to a synagogue, you will also gain a place to participate, grow and contribute.
