Welcome to McHenry County Jewish Congregation (MCJC)

The Jewish Heart of McHenry County



MCJC is an independent, fully egalitarian Jewish congregation that continually strives to create moments and memories that are meaningful, enjoyable and engaging.

Our members come from the greater McHenry County area and beyond. Many live in Crystal Lake, McHenry and Woodstock, while others come from the surrounding towns of Marengo, Cary, Algonquin, and Huntley.

We hold worship services every Friday evening, Saturday morning and for festivals. Classes meet throughout the week. Check out our Calendar for the latest details.

We are committed to diversity and inclusivity, and our congregation is as multicultural and multi-faith as the American Jewish community is, including: interfaith families, blended families and all points along the belief and observance spectrum.

For more information about MCJC, please contact us at: office@mcjconline.org or at 815-455-1810.


We are the heart of Jewish life in McHenry County and surrounding areas with our active program of education, worship, social action and community-building.


To provide an environment for spiritual connection, learning, celebration and social action, enabling Jews of all backgrounds to connect to our heritage, our community and our future.
