At Emanuel Synagogue, we believe in the importance of building a strong and engaged community, both within and beyond our walls. With the launch of Emanuel Plus, our new video-on-demand platform, we aim to expand our reach and provide a way for people to connect with our community and cultural offerings from wherever they are in the world.
As an extension of Emanuel Synagogue, Emanuel Plus is built on the values of inclusivity and accessibility. To that end, we have decided to include a subscription to Emanuel Plus as part of the standard membership dues for existing members of Emanuel Synagogue. This means that existing members will have full access to all content on Emanuel Plus for a year, at no additional cost.

For those in the extended community who are not already members of Emanuel Synagogue, we welcome you to join us on Emanuel Plus and engage with our community. To become a subscriber, you can sign up on the Emanuel Plus website for a nominal annual fee. This subscription will give you access to all of the content on the platform, including exclusive programming and events.

We do recognize that some major events may require a one-off viewing fee, but we will always aim to keep these fees as low as possible. These fees will help us to continue to provide high-quality cultural offerings and ensure the sustainability of Emanuel Plus.

We believe that Emanuel Plus will serve as a valuable tool for building a more connected and engaged community. We hope that by offering the subscription as part of the standard membership dues, we can encourage more members to take advantage of the platform and that by welcoming the extended community, we can continue to grow and thrive as a community.

For optimal viewing, we recommend using one of the supported browsers listed here.

Make sure you’re on a fast, reliable internet connection. When a video plays in lower than expected quality, it’s likely because your Internet speed (bandwidth) or computer processing speed cannot support higher quality playback.

  • If you can, try switching to a different internet or data connection.
  • Manually switch the quality of the video playback to a lower quality.
  • Try browsing in an Incognito or private browsing window. This will disable your extensions and clear your cache and cookies, which often improves performance.
  • If you have any internet filtering devices for your home (such as Disney Circle or Net Nanny), please turn these off as they can interfere with video playback or connectivity. Once done, close and reopen your browser and try visiting our website again.
  • If you have any other devices to try, sometimes that makes a difference.


  • Make sure your device and Chromecast are on the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Make sure you have a fast and stable internet connection with a download speed of at least 500kbps.
  • Unplug Chromecast and plug back in.
  • Restart your wireless router or modem.
  • Note: At this time, we do not support Chromecast devices that some TVs have built-in. While it may work, our player is not developed to support this and we cannot troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
