Becoming a Jew by Choice

Conversion at B’nai Tikvah

At B’nai Tikvah we are committed to providing those who wish to join the Jewish faith with the instruction, guidance and support they need to complete their conversion.

Our conversion program is sponsored by the Chicago Region of the Conservative Rabbinical Assembly and the Midwest Region of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, which is the association of Conservative Jewish congregations in the Midwest. The mission of the Institute is to provide dedicated, involved and nurturing instruction and guidance by the Institute’s Instructor and sponsoring Rabbis for individuals interested in exploring conversion to Judaism. The program helps people interested in Judaism work toward conversion to Judaism with a Conservative Rabbi.

Our synagogue welcomes Jews by choice and encourages their participation with family members during lifecycle events and in all aspects of our community.
