Maccabiah Shabbat

Special Shabbat Service for Maccabiah delegation, family and supporters

Emanuel Synagogue will be holding a special Shabbat service to farewell Australia’s Maccabiah representatives before they compete in the 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel.

Friends, family and community are invited to the service where we will wish the team farewell as well as remember the tragedy that befell Maccabi in Australia 20 years ago with the bridge collapse at the 1997 Games.

The community are also invited to a kiddush following the service.

Progressive Shabbat Service

The prayers of this service are conducted in both Hebrew and English and are led by one of our congregation's rabbis.

The services are enhanced with the music of the Emanuel Ensemble. A portion of the Torah is read and a sermon given about the content of the weekly parasha.

Masorti Shabbat Service

An inclusive, egalitarian, traditional service. The prayers are conducted in Hebrew and are led by the rabbis and knowledgeable lay leaders from a traditional siddur.

The entire parasha of the Torah is read and members of the community participate in the Torah reading. It is a participatory service with everyone encouraged to join in the singing of the prayers and the discussion of the parasha. 

Shabbat Live!

Enhancing Prayer with Music. 
Shabbat Live is an innovative Progressive Shabbat service where prayer is enhanced with musical instruments, beautiful melodies, creative readings and stories. During the hour-long service, we are transported on a journey, moving from the chaos and pressures of the work week to the joy, rest and peace of Shabbat. Gathered together with community in prayer and song, we will lift one another beyond the cares of the week, its stresses and burdens, to the holy sanctuary in time that is the Shabbat.
