Welcome to Makom Shalom!
Makom Shalom means “Place of Peace”. Or, if you like, “Grace Place,” which is the name of our High Holiday location at 637 S. Dearborn. For both visitors and members, Makom Shalom is a place of deep and abiding hope that inspires us to be our best selves. Our services will elevate you at the end of a long work week, with song, meditation, and prayer. Here is our schedule of Shabbat services and events.
We share a commitment to Chicago and to racial and economic justice in our city. We do this work as a Jewish, spiritual practice in deep partnership with other faiths. This is how we honor Tikun Olam, healing the world.
Whoever you are, whomever you love,
whatever your traditions, we welcome you.
