Welcome to Skokie Valley!

We are 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 commitment to intellectual discussion of 
Torah and other Jewish texts.
 
We invite you to join us in our “Big Tent” as we express the vitality and enthusiasm that defines us as Jews. Membership is open to all Jews regardless of affiliation, commitment or background.

Please see below for upcoming classes and events. Contact the office for the zoom links. Check back here often as our offerings expand to meet communal needs!

Sunday 4/18
8:30 am: Halacha in Our Lives with Rav Ari. Halacha comes from the word “to walk,” and its central purpose is to help us walk with God. Each Sunday morning at 8:30, Rav Ari will give a 30-minute shiur on practical halacha, with an eye towards increasing spiritual awareness in our daily living. Email Rav Ari ravari@svaj.org with halachic questions you’d like to be discussed.

What are your goals for moving forward, what are you looking towards doing and what might still keep you back. This will be an interesting discussion followed by breathing exercises and a guided relaxation and meditation. I look forward to having you join us.
