• 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.

  • Shabbat In The Park

    Shabbat services on August 18th will be at the Woodland Shelter in beautiful Sommer Park, 6329 Koerner Road in Peoria.

  • Honey Sale

    What better way
    to wish family,
    friends and
    business
    associates a
    “Sweet and
    Healthy New
    Year” than
    sending a jar
    of honey?

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!

Summer Oneg Sponsors Needed

This year, we will have onegs following all 7:30 pm Friday evening services. This is a good opportunity to schmooze with Rabbi Milkow!

Please contact Carolyn Close to volunteer to sponsor one of the summer onegs. It need not be elaborate--just something healthy (like fruit or cheese) and something unhealthy (like cake or cookies).

If you've never done this before, Carolyn will work with you and answer all your questions. It's especially fun if you're having a birthday or anniversary during the summer--everyone gets to celebrate with you!

Please sign up today!
