YOU ARE INVITED TO A WEDDING!
Makom Shalom / The Community invites you to join us in
a celebration of hope, love, music, and creativity!
Friday, September 9th, at 7:30 pm
East West University Auditorium
829 S. Wabash Avenue, Chicago
We will consecrate our sacred covenant with our new spiritual leader…
RABBI CANTOR MICHAEL DAVIS
As with all good weddings, there will be songs, stories, good cheer, and –naturally— too much food to eat. We are overjoyed to have found a warm and experienced spiritual leader right here in Chicago. We want to be surrounded by friends old and new as we welcome Rabbi Michael and his family into our community. UP WITH JOY!

Select one or BOTH events when you RSVP!
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.
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. Continue reading here to learn more about the history and practices of our community.
