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

  • Religious School

    The Anshai Emeth Religious School provides supplemental Jewish education for our children from Pre-K through 12th grade. We meet on Sundays from September to May. Our curriculum rotates between G’milut Chasadim, Prayer and Torah, with additional education provided in Jewish history and Hebrew. B’nai MItzvah training is provided for interested families, including an extra class of Hebrew on Thursdays for students in 4th through 6th grade.
  • 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.

  • First Ever Potluck Havdalah Game Night

    Come to the Anshai Emeth Board Game Café, Saturday, February 25th, at 6 pm.  We’ll start the night with a potluck dinner, followed by Havdalah and an evening of game playing!

  • PURIM!

    Purim is coming!  On Saturday night, March 11th–we’ll start with Havdalah at 6:45, pm, then begin our always-hilarious megillah reading at 7 pm.

  • 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.

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!
