• Religious School

    Anshai Emeth Religious School resumes classes on Sunday, September 10.  We welcome Rabbi Bryna Milkow, who will teach High School classes, help lead holiday celebrations, and work with all grades.
  • Social Action Program

    Anshai Emeth Social Action Committee has a new monthly program.   Instead of supporting a community program once a year, we have an ongoing support program.  This is like a gift register; all you need to do is select one item from the list and bring it to Temple.

Anshai Emeth is here to help you lead a more meaningful and spiritually rich life through Jewish community and a life of Torah. Whether you're new to our community or just newly ready, take the next step with Anshai Emeth!

Book Club

The next meeting of the temple Book Club will be Thursday, December 7th at 7 pm. The book we'll be discussing is Windy City Blues, by Renee Rosen.


"Leeba Groski doesn’t exactly fit in, but her love of music is not lost on her childhood friend and neighbor, Leonard Chess, who offers her a job at his new record company in Chicago. What starts as answering phones and filing becomes more than Leeba ever dreamed of, as she comes into her own as a songwriter and crosses paths with legendary performers like Chuck Berry and Etta James. But it’s Red Dupree, a black blues guitarist from Louisiana, who captures her heart and changes her life.

Their relationship is unwelcome in segregated Chicago and they are shunned by Leeba’s Orthodox Jewish family. Yet in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, Leeba and Red discover that, in times of struggle, music can bring people together."

Please contact Becky Carlson for more information of if you want her to order a book for you:

Soup And Cinema

The first movie of the year will be on October 26th, beginning with a light dinner of soup and sides at 5:30 pm. No charge; donations gratefully accepted.

The movie is The Wedding Plan, a 2017 Israeli romantic comedy (in Hebrew with English subtitles).

Here's a little about it: "When her fiancé bows out on the eve of her wedding, Michal refuses to cancel the wedding arrangements. An Orthodox Jew, she insists that God will supply her a husband. As the clock ticks down."
