MORE INFO

 

MEET RABBI RENA SINGER

 

Rabbi Rena Singer serves as the Associate Rabbi at Temple Sholom. She loves Makom because it allows her to collaborate with people like you to make Judaism accessible, relevant to modern life, and fun.

 

She enjoys cooking elaborate meals, and killing house plants.

 

Connect with her at rabbisinger@sholomchicago.org.


 

One of the ways we build, strengthen, and sustain our spiritual community here at Temple Sholom is through membership commitment.

 

Becoming a member at a synagogue is more than just a financial commitment - it means creating a mutually sustaining relationship with our community, where we can lift up the important work of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedakah (righteous giving), while creating vibrant progressive Jewish life in Chicago.


Makom membership includes:

  • High Holiday Tickets

  • Free registration to select Makom events

  • Access to world class speakers and educational opportunities provided by Temple Sholom

  • Supporting and connecting to a loving, sacred, multi-generational Jewish community in Chicago

In support of these values, we are pleased to offer a Makom Individual Membership at a special rate of $36/month for your first year. 

 

If you are interested in Makom membership, please contact Jude Kamler at jude@sholomchicago.org.
