About This Community

A quick 30 minutes from the bustling frum Jewish hub of Chicago/Skokie, and O'Hare International Airport, Buffalo Grove is a haven of beauty and calm, replete with a warm, growing Jewish community. Here, you’ll find a wonderful shul, nurturing day school and warm kollel dedicated to Torah growth, a gorgeous mikvah, and an extensive, upgraded eruv.
BAY Shul has a connected family feel with a sit-down kiddush every Shabbos and fun community programming. Torah Academy, a wonderfully warm, student-centered day school, grades PreK-8th, provides an excellent, individualized Torah and general studies education to a broad range of students. The Northern Lights Kollel has one-on-one learning opportunities across the northwest suburbs and Chicago.

Buffalo Grove is also home to expansive, stunning parks, nature preserves, ball fields, tennis courts, walking paths, and great public libraries. Nearby, Shalom Bakery offers delicious, kosher baked goods, while the local Jewel-Osco, and Jewish-owned Garden Fresh supermarket, have well-stocked kosher aisles as well as kosher meat, chicken, and fish. Within a few minute's drive, there are stores such as Trader Joe’s, Woodman’s, Costco, Walmart, Marshalls, and all of YOUR favorite shopping spots!

We're closely connected to the amazing Jewish life in Chicago and everything that it offers - Torah centers, high schools, post-HS learning, Jewish colleges, shopping, eateries, day camps, and so much more.

Housing options in Buffalo Grove range from single-family homes, townhouses, apartments, and condos, available at affordable prices – 3-BR houses start at 350K!
