Skokie Valley Agudath Jacob Synagogue

Welcome to a community with a vision!

SVAJ is a Modern Orthodox congregation with a firm commitment to halakha (Jewish law), a spirit of inclusion and ahavat achim v'achot (love of fellow person), and a strong belief in the intellectual discussion of Torah and Jewish texts.

The JUF News recently identified SVAJ with this headline: “A shul flourishes through its ‘Big Tent’ model.” We invite you to join us in a “tent” that offers each of us an opportunity to express the vitality and enthusiasm that defines us as Jews.
