Services Schedule

    Congregation Tikkun Olam is pleased to offer Shabbat and High Holy Day services as well as occasional Saturday evening Havdalah  and other holiday celebrations. We are a congregation that is open to diversity and wishes to pray, study, and celebrate our Judaism together in a warm, comfortable setting surrounded by friends and family. All members and guests are invited to participate in all of our services because we believe strongly in our commitment to the community. We use member leaders for most of our services, but all of our High Holy Day services are led by a guest rabbi. Our service schedule is shown below. Reminders are sent in our monthly e-mails and on Facebook, and our High Holy Day service schedule is also submitted to local newspapers.  We hope you’ll join us! 

Service location: 
            St. Ann’s Episcopal Church,
503 W. Jackson St., Woodstock, IL

As a means of helping our local community, we have joined with St. Ann's members in collecting non-perishable items for the Woodstock Food Pantry, and diapers (all sizes newborn through adult) for the local Diaper Bank.
             You may bring your donations to all services and activities
