Ezra Habonim, the Niles Township Jewish Congregation is a Conservative/Reconstructionist synagogue serving the spiritual, religious, educational and social needs of the Jewish community. We welcome all individuals and families who are seeking a special place – a vital center to nurture their Jewish life. Through competent leadership and innovative programming, we aim to attract and retain members in all age groups. We take pride in our long and continuing history of egalitarian participation in all aspects of ritual activity, and in our being a warm, caring, supportive community.
EHNTJC has roots as Skokie's oldest synagogue, while remaining fresh and relevant, having made positive changes in all areas in recent years. The synagogue is unique in that while Rabbi Ginsburg is ordained from the Conservative Seminary, we are affiliated with both the Conservative movement and the Reconstructionist movement. We therefore have the unique ability to appeal to the broad middle range of Jews today. Our motto is "Judaism for the Heart, Mind and Spirit"
