Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Monastery is a monastic community for men in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. It is located in Harvard, Illinois, and a monastery under the spiritual guidance of Elder Ephraim.

The monastery was founded in the fall of 1998 by one priestmonk and two monks from St. Anthony's Monastery under the auspices of His Eminence Metropolitan Iakovos of Chicago to fulfill the lay requests for a male monastery in the Illinois/Wisconsin area.

The monastery consists of men living the monastic tradition of a Christ-centered prayer life for the monastic members. To support itself, the monastery sells ecclesiastical garments and gold- and copper-plated crosses and icons.
