Shabbat services Chicago this week

Our Monthly Friday Night Shabbat Services are held at the Skokie Hotel, Rodeway Inn ( Formerly Comfort Inn) 9333 Skokie Boulevard, usually first Friday of the month 7:30 PM
Next service is  March  7 and then April 4.
We are a transdenominational (not affiliated-just Jewish) synagogue using Reform siddur.

Experience a 45 minute service with dvar Torah, brief study session followed by  oneg shabbat goodies, kiddush and challah.. The service is half Hebrew, half English, much group singing. Kippah or not, its your choice.
You're always welcome at Bnai Chai!

March 7 topic for discussion after the service will be Purim
