We’re delighted to announce that Emanuel Synagogue will be holding services in person for our members in 2023, for the first time in four years all back on our one campus. We are extremely excited to be returning to the restored Heritage Sanctuary for Progressive services and will once again have our Masorti Services in the Millie Phillips Building and Renewal Services and other creative activities in the Neuweg.

We know that parking near the synagogue is often a challenge and this is especially true during High Holy Days. There is no on-site parking and only limited parking is available in the streets near the synagogue. Most of the parking available in the area is 2P. For vehicles displaying a valid disability permit, parking in a 2P zone is permitted for the whole day. We recommend you consider using a ride-share service or taxi. There is a small area in front of the synagogue for drop off and pick up of disabled or elderly congregants. From the street, there is disabled access including wheelchair access to all sanctuaries.
There is some parking available to the public in Centennial Park, though please note any time limit restrictions and be aware that the gates close at sunset.
Creating a safe and secure space
We greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation regarding our security measures at High Holy Days services. Security personnel will be checking bags, tickets and identification upon arrival. You might be asked some questions; please answer them calmly and honestly. We take seriously our duty to protect you and we are grateful for your support and understanding.
Finding your seat
Most of the seats in our services are unallocated. If you have allocated seats in the Heritage Sanctuary or Millie Phillips Sanctuary, your seat details will be indicated on your ticket. A seating plan showing allocated and unallocated rows will be in the foyer of the Heritage Sanctuary and the entrance to the Millie Phillips Sanctuary.
In the Heritage Sanctuary row A in the downstairs pews is reserved for the elderly and those who are less mobile and there will be designated seats in the front row of the Millie Phillips Sanctuary. Throughout the services there will be volunteer ambassadors who will be pleased to answer any questions you may have and to provide assistance.
Purchasing assigned seats
As we approach the High Holy Days, we are pleased to advise that we still have some seats available for assigned use on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, in both the Heritage Sanctuary and the Millie Phillips Sanctuary. Your seat pledge is 50% tax deductible and numbers are strictly limited. If you are interested, please e-mail Rabbi Sam Zwarenstein or contact the office on 9389 6444.
Respecting the sanctity of prayer
In order to create a peaceful and respectful atmosphere during prayer services, we request that you refrain from entering or leaving the sanctuary when the congregation is standing. Please also note that use of mobile phones, cameras and similar electronic devices is not permitted during services.
We are always happy to hear from you
If you have any questions that we have not addressed, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9389 6444.
Looking forward with gratitude
We look forward to welcoming you during the High Holy Days, celebrating the entire community being able to gather and engage in meaningful prayer and connection on the same campus.
May these Yamim Nora’im be filled with health, happiness and blessings.
We wish you and your family Shana Tovah and ketivah v’chatimah tovah, may you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.
