Sunday Mornings @ Oak Park Temple

Members and prospective members visiting Oak Park Temple on Sunday mornings will find a vibrant community with something for everyone!

The Bagel Boys sell bagels, lox, almost every bagel topping you can imagine, coffee, juices, and other drinks in the Temple rotunda. Grab a bagel and coffee, bring your newspaper, tablet or computer, and relax in the rotunda or upstairs in the library. You can schmooze with friends, hold an impromptu committee meeting or pretend like you’re getting work done. The Temple even offers free wi-fi to members.

You can also take your bagel and coffee upstairs to one of our Adult Education classrooms, where you can join one of a number of Torah Study classes. You don’t need to read Hebrew–you can just jump right in. Learn more on our Adult Education section.

Parents of school-age children can drop off their kids at Religious School, while parents of younger kids can enjoy inexpensive babysitting (as long as they stay in the Temple).

It’s a safe bet that something more will be happening: a bake sale in the rotunda, signups for the annual Temple retreat or other events, a book sale or rummage sale in the community hall, or a special guest speaker.

Come join us on Sunday mornings!

The Bagel Boys: We’re Looking for a Few Good Machers!

The Bagel Boys of Oak Park are a group of irreverent do-gooders who rise to the challenge of providing physical sustenance (in the form of bagels, lox, beverages and sarcasm) for our congregants and guests on Sunday mornings. We have a proud heritage, spanning more than two decades, of creating a special Sunday morning Oak Park Temple ambiance that spreads like a good schmeer. And now you can be at the center of the storm!

Join us for fun, fellowship, laughter, tears and bonhomie. Make life-long friends, support Oak Park Temple, and get to know the bagel preferences of OPT congregants. You get to pick your bagel first!

For more information, talk to any of the Bagel Boys on Sunday mornings, or contact Seth Levrant, Chief Bagel, or Jeff Blaine, Bagel Emeritus.
