Makom Shalom means Place of Peace


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 Tikkun Olam, healing the world.

Whoever you are, whomever you love, whatever your traditions, we welcome you.
