Welcome to Emanuel  Synagogue

Our Vision: That all Jews have a spiritual home to sanctify their lives through Jewish practice, sensitive to contemporary society and committed to Jewish tradition.


A home where you can live your Judaism in a contemporary world, drawing on ancient teachings and traditions.


We teach and practise that women in Judaism have equal rights and responsibilities.


We are proud to acknowledge there is more than one way to believe, practise and live as a Jew — a fact that has been embraced by Judaism throughout history.


Our lives are enriched through diversity. We embrace the diversity of Jewish experience, thought and practice.
