Learn more about Lake Shore Drive Synagogue.

Lake Shore Drive Synagogue

Located in the heart of the Gold Coast and along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan Lake Shore Drive Synagogue, also known as the Elm Street Shul has been a vital member of the Chicago Jewish community since its establishment.

Known for its welcoming atmosphere and members, it draws residents and visitors from the Gold Coast, Streeterville, River North and as far north as Lincoln Park.

We invite you to join us for services on Shabbat, during the week and on holidays – and please, stay for Kiddush lunch!
