The Illinois Minyan Map shows Jewish Orthodox Synagogues, Shuls and Minyunim in Illinois.
Unlike the standard Minyan listing search, the Illinois Minyan Map page does not show each Minyan in in list view. We show you here a larger map so that you can easily locate each Minyan in Illinois on one map. For a Minyan search that displays details of each Minyan in a list or grid view with a smaller map on top, click “Find a Minyan” button below.
To get details for any Minyan in Illinois, click on the map marker directly on the map.
Illinois has a large Jewish population with the majority of Jews in the state living in and around Chicago. Skokie, IL in particular is home to a large Frum Orthodox Jewish population.
The Illinois Minyan Map will show all Shuls and Synagogues in Illinois and the Minyan Map will extend to include Milwaukee, WI to the north, Indianapolis, IN to the east and St. Louis, MO to the southwest.
Beyond the Chicago metropolitan area, there are small but sizeable Jewish populations in Springfield, Rockford, Peoria, Elgin, Aurora, Waukegan, Bloomington, Decatur Kankakee and Danville.
There are also approximate 2,000 Jews widely scattered in the 63 towns and cities of southern Illinois, which united for communal purposes in the Southern Illinois Jewish Federation. The largest Jewish communities represented in this federation are Aurora, Belleville, East St. Louis, Cairo, Alton, Centralia, Carbondale, Granite City, Benton, Mattoon, and Robinson. The communities Champaign, Decatur, Peoria, and Springfield joined forces in 1969 in the Central Illinois Jewish Federation.
