Welcome to Rodfei Zedek

Congregation  Rodfei Zedek is a vibrant, unique, and inviting community. We attract individuals and families from all over Chicago, with diverse backgrounds and from across the spectrum of Jewish observance and identity. Read our Mission Statement.

We’re proud of our multi-generational membership and are particularly supportive of young children and their families. We’re guided by the principles of Masorti/Conservative Judaism while simultaneously respecting multiple orientations toward religious thought and practice and encouraging meaningful dialog surrounding all aspects of Jewish life. 

Rodfei Zedek’s lay leaders, clergy and staff enjoy a strong and fruitful partnership. Together, we create a wide range of opportunities through which we worship, learn, and get to know each other. Our Friday night services and potluck dinners are lively and participatory for all ages, including our treasured summer tradition, Shabbat al fresco and our rocking musical "KabShab project" with a host of musicians from the community and beyond. Our weekly Shabbat morning services are spirited and participatory; and our monthly Na’aseh V’Nishma service features musical instruments and  extended Torah study.   Our holiday-based pop‑up restaurant transforms Rodfei Zedek into an extraordinary culinary setting with innovative Jewish flare.

We hope you’ll check out our adult education offerings led by congregants and staff, including a weekly Talmud study, our communal “One Book, One Rodfei Zedek” experience, and "This American Shabbat," where congregants bring personal meaning to Torah study on several Shabbat mornings during the year.

We hope you’ll seek out our family education programs such as Minyan Katan, Minyan Gadol, the Community Retreat, special holiday events like our Community Megillah reading, and much more. We are enriched through our community partnership with the Jewish Enrichment Center which offers unparalleled programs for our young children.

Rodfei Zedek continues to create new opportunities for people of all ages to build engagement and connection to our tradition. There are many points of entry into the Rodfei Zedek community with new ones continuing to emerge as our community grows and thrives.

Rodfei Zedek is continually dedicated to welcoming new participants and to creating meaningful expressions of Jewish life for all ages.
