We engage children in the spirit of Shabbat through song, dance, and story in regular services for Shabbat and Festivals. Our talented and joyous youth leaders delight and inspire children and parents to join in meaningful prayer inspiring a love of Judaism.
Yom Kippur 2017 begins at sunset on Friday, September 29 and ends at sundown on Saturday, September 30. Yom Kippur is the Jewish day of communal and personal atonement for sins committed during the past year.
Fasting is one of the central components of the Yom Kippur holiday. Jewish adults are commanded to fast, but there are exceptions for pregnant women, nursing mothers, and those who are ill.
Emanuel Synagogue welcomes all people to visit our services and events.
We aim to cater for all of the Jewish community as well as anyone who identifies with our mission, vision and values. Further we maintain a strong online presence to share information and educate young and old plus produce regular publications to aid this learning. We welcome all feedback to improve our communication and engagement with you.
Each Shabbat, we offer a choice of Progressive and Masorti services. In addition, we hold regular Renewal services.
