About Am Shalom

About Us

Am Shalom began when a small group of passionate people gathered in a living room to lay out their hopes and dreams for a new congregation: a welcoming home, a place that responds to people’s needs, and a community that embodies the command of God to Abraham: be thou a blessing. Our congregation has grown, but these core values remain the same today.

Our Refugee Families

On January, 27, 2017, many congregants from Am Shalom synagogue in Glencoe, Illinois, crowded together at O’Hare International Airport, waiting to greet one of the last families of Syrian refugees to cross our borders. They arrived with nothing, from a war-torn country that we’d been watching on our 24-hour television news cycle: a canvas of faraway landscapes and lifestyles that were decimated.
