The Jewish Federation Of Peoria lists Chabad of Peoria on its website as one of the institutions it recommends and this is a review of Chabad of Peoria. My 4 stars are for Chabad--I have no knowledge of other Jewish institutions in Peoria. I attended Yom Kippur services at Chabad of Peoria in 2014. I had to travel from Bloomingon, IL, where I live, as there's only a Reform synagogue here. I thought the rabbi (Rabbi Eli Langsam) did an outstanding job and I'm glad that he's persevering even though he could barely get a minyan even on Yom Kippur. He is a helpful, pleasant, and fairly efficient person (although his Chabad website contained numerous errors about the dates of events, etc.) The best thing about his davening was that he explained to the congregation what was going on in the service a it went along. Usually at an Orthodox service a lot of us who don't have years of training have no idea what is going on. Also, he brought in an excellent chazzan from Chicago. I wish all the Chabad rabbis were as competent as Rabbi Eli Langsam.

I am the great grandmother of two children who are in custody of the state.. I just found out today about one of them.. so far any information about them has been withheld from me by request of the parents.. who don't even have custody.. I find it off that any family who is interested in the welfare of these children cannot be allowed any information on them.. they are Daniel and Lauren Hale children of Allen and Ashleey Hale. I found out about Daniel through court records online.. I don't know when Lauren was born and only know about her via a letter to Ashleey that was delivered here by mistake.. Is there any way that I can legally be allowed information about my great grandchildren? I am their mother's grandmother and she is alienated from the family because of her husband..
It's a good place to work. I had never worked here before. This will be my first year workin here.
