• 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!

Mac-N-Cheese Menorah Time!

The Annual Mac-N-Cheese food drive will begin on November 27th. The empty Menorah will be waiting to be filled after Thanksgiving. It takes over 670 boxes to fill our Menorah. We traditionally donate the boxes to Common Place and The Center for Prevention of Abuse.

Please make sure any pasta boxes you purchase are not close to their expiration date, because the shelters are not allowed to give away expired food. We want the macaroni to last for at least 9 months.

We also will be accepting canned goods and non-perishables. The need in Peoria is growing. Every time you go grocery shopping, purchase a little extra to donate to our food drive.

We will be accepting your boxes throughout the month of December, but we hope to reach our goal of filling the menorah by December 22nd.

Thank you for your support and generosity!

Special Congregational Meeting To Discuss Bylaws Changes

A Congregational meeting has been set by the Board of Trustees for Sunday, December 17 at 10:30 am at Congregation Anshai Emeth. At the November board meeting, the Board of Trustees voted to approve and here recommends adoption of proposed changes to the bylaws of the Congregation. These proposed changes are similar to, but not identical with, what was presented to the Congregation at the last annual meeting.

If you would like to see the document reflecting the proposed changes to the bylaws, a copy will be available in the office or you can request that a copy be sent to you. If you would like to see the specific changes, a redlined copy will also be available in the office and can also be sent upon request. Please contact Sally in the temple office: 691-3323
