Yavneh serves as the Orthodox congregation of Hyde Park. As such, we seek to follow standards of halakhic observance as laid out in the Shulchan Aruch and its interpretations. During the University of Chicago academic year, Yavneh provides prayer services on Shabbat for kabbalat shabbat, shacharit/mussaf, and mincha/maariv, as well as daily minyanim, on a schedule determined by member availability. In this capacity, we are recognized by the Chicago Rabbinical Council (cRc) as an Orthodox synagogue in Chicago. Yavneh also provides services for those Jewish holidays and festivals overlapping the University of Chicago academic year. To find prayer services outside the academic year, click here. Should any Halachic disputes requiring appeals to an outside Beit Din arise, they will be resolved only through the Av Beit Din of the cRc.
