The mission of Moriah is to further a return to the synagogue as the heart of the Jewish community, where members of all ages develop an extended family built upon shared values, Conservative Jewish observance, a love of Israel, and a commitment to the perpetuation of the Jewish people.
Moriah is a traditional Conservative Congregation affiliated with the United Synagogue of America and its Chicago regional branch. Our membership is varied, ranging from very young singles to young families with small children to middle age and senior citizens. Moriah members come from all kinds of Jewish backgrounds, have very different levels of Jewish religious observance and are staunchly independent in their Jewish attitudes and views. What they share is a strong sense of the importance of Judaism and Jewish identity in their lives. They want to learn and they want to understand. They possess a respect for Jewish tradition and a love of Jewish practice. They are dedicated to the perpetuation of the Jewish people.
Moriah is a place to study, to pray, and to make friends. Moriah members develop a community of caring and concerned people. All Jews are welcome at Moriah. Those Jews who wish to grow Jewishly will find that in Moriah they have a home.
