CBS Home

Welcome to Congregation Beth Shalom!

We are an unaffiliated community synagogue located in DeKalb, Illinois, just north of the Northern Illinois University main campus. We are a community of 50+ families of different ages, backgrounds, education and experiences, joined together in our shared Jewish faith. Our members come from a wide spectrum of Jewish traditions, primarily Reform and Conservative, but also Orthodox, secular, and inter-faith. As a result, CBS is a pluralistic, inclusive, egalitarian blending of many Jewish backgrounds and traditions. We welcome anyone and everyone who would like to be a part of Jewish life here in Dekalb county!
