Welcome to Congregation Or Chadash,the synagogue dedicated to meeting the needs of the LGBT community in the Chicago area. Or Chadash was founded in 1975 in response to the discrimination and isolation experienced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Jews in mainstream synagogues.  Today, Or Chadash exists to provide a warm and nurturing environment for all Jews, regardless  of  sexual orientation, age, race, or religious background, whether Jew by choice or by birth.

We  invite you  to join us for services, holiday celebrations, or classes and experience the unique opportunities Or Chadash offers. Please use the dropdown menu for more information on our community. You can find shabbat and high holy day information under worship and holidays.
