Stretching back before its move from Chicago to Oak Park, the Oak Park Temple has a storied history.
In the years since the Harlem Avenue temple was established in 1957, the congregation has grown and the programs offered by the temple have expanded considerably.
In addition to offering regular worship hours and services for life events, members of west suburban Jewish community can partake in pre-school and religious education sessions for kids and Torah study groups an Hebrew education for adults.
The temple is led by Rabbi Max Weiss.
