For decades, Highland Park’s Congregation Solel and Lakeside Congregation, both Reform synagogues, existed semi-separately.

The two, which most recently were located down the street from one another sometimes included both congregations in shared events, but for the most part they existed as two separate entities.

That was until June 2, when they united to form one synagogue — Makom Solel Lakeside.
