A message from Rabbi Jenny…

Reb Nachman of Brezlov stated, “See the good in everyone, reveal it, and bring it forth.” 


At the Joliet Jewish Congregation we strive to shine the goodness in each other through the joy of community, worship, and learning. Emphasizing the beauty in the Jewish Calendar Year, the deep meaningful messages of Torah, and the wisdom of charity, we strive for a strong community of hope and faith.


We at Joliet Jewish Congregation have a unique and powerful combination of strong liturgy and Jewish worship with interfaith tolerance and inclusion. We work to educate all on the essence of Judaism providing a gateway for lifetime pride and practice through relevance and joy.


Come join us at one of our Shabbat Services and you will see! A community of open minded and joyful members awaits you. If you have been searching for the perfect congregation where you can learn without pressure, pray without judgment, and express your Judaism with honesty and joy, JJC is waiting for you.


At our Hebrew and Sunday School we combine historical lessons with experiential art and learning to create a strong foundation for a young person to develop a whole Jewish Identity.


Our services and classes are available live by reservation and by zoom. We look forward to seeing you, shining light on your goodness, and bringing the joy of Judaism to your life.


See you soon.  B’Shalom, Rabbi Jenny

C antor Jessica Tobacman 

Special thoughts from Cantor Tobacman

I’m fortunate to be the cantor for Joliet Jewish Congregation, helping to maintain and grow the community’s musical traditions.

I teach music at Sunday school, direct the chorus for High Holidays, and help to lead High Holy Day and occasional Shabbat services.

We have a wonderful temple, and hope to share our musical and other Jewish traditions with you!

Our Synagogue

We are a traditional synagogue mixing Reform and Conservative ideology. We welcome all families of the Jewish faith and families where a spouse is of a different faith. 

At the Joliet Jewish Congregation we strive to shine the goodness in each other through the joy of community worship and learning.

We at the Joliet Jewish Congregation (JJC) have a dynamic strong liturgy & Jewish worship combined with interfaith tolerance and inclusion. We are committed to a creative, contemporary approach to Jewish life and the practice of Judaism.
