Do you live outside the Chicago area? Join Temple Har Zion virtually. 

Virtual Memberships are available for those who strictly wish to only have access to online, remote Har Zion content. Virtual memberships may be of interest to those who live out of the Chicago area and would still like to be connected virtually to Har Zion and the Har Zion community, including:

  • Members who have moved out of the area.
  • Relatives of Har Zion members who want to support the temple and join in for certain holidays and events. 
  • During these pandemic times, we welcome new Chicago locals to join our community virtually through this option. New local virtual members may adjust to full membership at any time.
