Church Collapses in Kankakee  


Share post:

KANKAKEE – Cleanup is under way today after a longtime religious structure in Kankakee collapsed over the weekend.

According to reports it happened Saturday when the building, a former synagogue turned Church located at Harrison and River Streets, began showing signs of structural problems following heavy rains in the area. 

That’s when the roof, after collecting water on its flat surface, began to collapse, taking a portion of the North exterior wall facing River Street with it.

The building, located at 600 S. Harrison, had formerly been a longtime home of Temple B’nai Israel Kankakee in the 1970s but more recently home to True Vine Life-Changing Ministries. 

Kankakee Fire reported to the scene shortly after the collapse.  No one was reported injured in the incident.
