About Us


Welcome to Temple Har Zion
!ברוכים הבאים

West Suburban Temple Har Zion is dedicated to providing a welcoming and caring community for members in River Forest, Oak Park, the Western suburbs, and the greater Chicago area.

We are proud to be part of the larger Conservative movement in Judaism, which emphasizes the balance of tradition and change, and thoughtful and relevant programs for all segments of the Jewish community. Our temple continues this legacy by emphasizing the values of lifelong learning, meaningful prayer, and inspiring congregational events.

We are devoted to creating vibrant and meaningful worship experiences that honor our Jewish tradition and encourage spiritual exploration. Whether you’re interested in beginning or resuming your spiritual journey, we invite you to learn more about our community at Temple Har Zion.
