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.

Our building is closed but Skokie Valley is going strong! Please see below for upcoming Shul Events. Click on each event for the Zoom link. Check back here often as our offerings expand to meet communal needs!
