We invite you to become a member of our vibrant congregation. At Beth Hillel Temple you'll find a small, tight-knit, welcoming Reform congregation of over 130 member families. We attract members of all ages, from newborn to over 90 years young who generally live in Northern Illinois and Southeastern Wisconsin. We welcome all who wish to celebrate Jewish life: families, singles and couples, lesbian, gay and transgender, interfaith couples and Jews by choice.

What We Offer



Opportunities for Non-Jewish Members


Beth Hillel Temple welcomes the participation of non-Jewish members of the congregation in our worship and ritual ceremonies. We recognize and respect the fact that some non-Jewish members of the congregation may choose not to participate in any of our rituals or worship services. However, we also recognize that there are many who would like to participate in the spiritual life of the congregation. While we welcome those who may be considering conversion to Judaism to explore that option fully, we welcome also the presence of those who are unable, for whatever reason, to make that commitment and still choose to worship among us. 

Member Contributions

Beth Hillel Temple has adopted a “Member Community Commitment” program in lieu of a more traditional categorical dues system. This approach empowers each member to become an active stakeholder in the support of the temple community. We ask our members to determine the level of support for the congregation which they are best able to provide. Members fill out a Pledge Form and submit it prior to July 1 every year. The pledge can be paid monthly, quarterly, or on an annual basis (July 1 – June 30 billing cycle) and may be paid online or with a check sent in to the Temple office.
