We are a diverse and welcoming Orthodox Jewish community in Prospect Heights

Founded in 1924, Congregation Kol Israel is the oldest continuously practicing Orthodox community in Prospect Heights. From Chasidic to Modern Orthodox to just plain curious, we are proud to count people from a wide variety of religious backgrounds as members.

Guided by Torah and halakha, Kol Israel is committed to building a community that allows its members to build strong relationships with each other and with God.  We aim to build a sacred space nurtured in Torah, prayer, and acts of loving kindness that fosters both personal and spiritual growth.

Come and join us for services any time. We welcome newcomers - whatever background you're coming from, you'll find a warm and open atmosphere at Kol Israel.
