Northwest Suburban Interfaith Council Additional Events

Each fall, hundreds of millions of monarch butterflies migrate from the US and Canada to mountains in central Mexico where they wait out the winter until conditions favor a return flight in the spring. Monarch friendly gardens are places that provide resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration. Without milkweeds throughout their spring and summer breeding areas in North America, monarchs would not be able to produce the successive generations that culminate in the migration each fall. The Northwest Suburban Interfaith Council, under the leadership of Bruce Glickson from Temple Chai, has helped establish Monarch friendly gardens at many of our membership congregations. You can help too as an individual to establish Monarch Waystations where you live. More information is available at or you can contact us at

Celebrating Our Commonalities

The mission of the Interfaith Council is to foster understanding among those of different faiths, encourage cooperative social service efforts, and serve as an ethical and moral voice promoting the positive growth and unity of our community. This is done through open dialogue, discussion, fellowship, and collaboration to meet some of the agreed upon social needs in our suburban area. In this way, our community can break down barriers caused by the lack of knowledge about, and the fear of, other religions.
