GILLSON PARK in Wilmette, 6:00 p.m.

The deadline for your commitment is July 30.
Please let us know if you are interested in joining the trip.
Summer is a great time at Am Yisrael. We move our Shabbat services outside into our tented courtyard whenever the weather permits. We encourage you to dress casually and comfortably, shorts, flip flops, jeans... etc.
With many congregants taking vacations during the summer months, we sometimes have trouble making our minyan, especially at the start of services, so we want to urge you to join us. To paraphrase a Chicago cliche, "Come early, come often". If you can identify the source of that quote, please let us know when you come to services!
Fridays at 6:00 p.m.
Saturdays at 9:30 a.m.
Sundays at 9:15 a.m.
Our services are musical, inspirational and the community is warm and friendly. Plus there is food on Shabbat morning and Sundays. Please join us.

Birthright Israel is a unique, historical partnership between the people of Israel through their government, local Jewish communities (North American Jewish Federations; Keren Hayesod; and The Jewish Agency for Israel), and leading Jewish philanthropists. Birthright Israel provides a gift of peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26.

The Rabbinical Assembly recently sponsored a conference to celebrate women in the rabbinate. Of course, Rabbi Newman Kamin figured prominently in the festivities. She is one of a very few women rabbis to serve as pulpit rabbis, and has certainly achieved high status by virtue of being at one synagogue for such a long time. Am Yisrael and our Rabbi continue to be legendary in the Conservative Movement! Click here to listen to Rabbi Newman Kamin's opening remarks at the conference.
