B’nai Zion was the first synagogue established in Rogers Park in 1919. The Conservative congregation moved into its magnificent building at 1447 West Pratt Blvd. in 1926. It soon became a bedrock of the Rogers Park Jewish community for years to come. B’nai Zion, as well as many other religious, cultural, social and political aspects of Jewish Rogers Park, will be part of my presentation on “The Jewish Community in Rogers Park” at the Rogers Park Library on August 12 at 6:30 pm. The library is located at 6907 N. Clark Street. The event is sponsored by the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society.
