• We are looking for volunteers to teach exciting and desired classes for our community!

  • 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.

  • Parsha Project

    Students of Anshai Emeth Religious School explore the stories of Genesis. Video, audio and newspaper projects show what they have learned and what they think the stories teach us.

  • Treasure Trove & Trinket aka Rummage and Thrift Sale.

    Bring your Rummage Sale Items NOW!
    Thats right folks. It is almost time for our annual Treasure Trove & Trinket aka Rummage and Thrift Sale.

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!

Daytime donations welcome, but call Sally and have her meet you downstairs--then just drive around to drop off. Jewelry and small crystal can go to Sally's office but PLEASE do not dump and donate elsewhere on the main floor.

"Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the produce thereof. But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath unto HaShem; thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. That which groweth of itself of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, and the grapes of thy undressed vine thou shalt not gather; it shall be a year of solemn rest for the land."

We need teachers, speakers, discussion leaders, etc. for Erev Shavuot, May 30th, beginning at 9 pm. Studying late into the night with a community is a way for us to "Be present with the community of Israel when the Torah is given to us." It's also very enjoyable!

Study on a wide range of topics is welcome so long as they are somehow related to Shavuot. Any member of the Jewish community is welcome. Stay all evening or come to our study session for a while and then go to others.

Please contact Joe Felder to schedule your time slot at (309)231-8330 or at felder@bradley.edu.

P.S. It is customary to eat dairy foods on Shavuot so blintzes, cheesecake, and any dairy dish is welcome. The temple will provide food also, so nobody will leave hungry!
