Our Building

watch the Chai Celebration Video, December 2018

"...Let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them."

5200 South Hyde Park Boulevard The current building, con­structed on the site of the synagogue's previous sanctuary, chapel, and foyer, was dedicated in 2000.  Designed by the architectural firm of Philip Kupritz and Associates, the building was  a cooperative project of the synagogue and the Hyde Park Jewish Community Center, which shared the facility for 19 years.

Consider hosting your event in our space.  Our building is fully ADA-compliant.  Access to the building is at ground level through the parking lot entrance on the south side of the building.  An elevator to the second floor is at the southwest corner of the building, located next to the Sisterhood Gift Shop.


The red brick and white masonry building covers 32,000 square feet on two floors.  Parking for 45 cars is provided next to the building on the south.  A 300‑seat sanctuary, expandable to 700 seats for High Holiday services, is located on the ground level, opening off an atrium-style foyer.  (Learn about the windows in the sanctuary—God, the Torah, and Israel are One—and our vintage Tzedakah Box).  The ground level also includes the synagogue office, offices of the Rabbi and Cantor, Sisterhood's Nelson Judaica Gift Shop, Newberger Social Hall, gymnasium, classrooms, and meat and dairy kitchens.  Other spaces, including the Glick Chapel, classrooms, a computer resource room, and the Abbell Library are located on the second floor.

The synagogue office is open 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-3:00 or 4:30 p.m. Fridays and the day before holidays;  and other times by appointment.  The office is closed on Jewish and national holidays.
