• 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!

We have been invited to an event for the 8th grade and high schoolers in Bloomington, IL. The event is on Saturday January 27th. We will leave our Temple at 10:15 am and return around 5:15 pm. The event will include teens from Bloomington, Galesburg, and Champaign. We will be having lunch with a few of the teens from St. Louis who are on the NFTY board as well. The event will also include going to the Trampoline Park in Bloomington. Parents must sign a waiver online for the park. The cost of the event is free. Due to the drive, I need to know of people interested ASAP so that we can have enough space. This is a great way to meet other Jewish teens in the area, and have fun!

Social Action Committee Meeting

The next meeting of Anshai Emeth's Social Action Committee will be January 24th at 7 PM at the Temple. Please RSVP to Paul Beiersdorf.

Paul will be attending a leadership training hosted by the URJ/Religious Action Center (RAC) on January 21st, and will be sharing what he learned at this meeting.

Come with ideas! What are you excited about? What can we get our Congregation excited about? How can we get our youth involved? What's the best way to show solidarity with our community? Is there more we should be doing to build relationships within our Congregation? How involved do we want to be on local, state, and national issues?

If you cannot attend, Paul is still interested in your input! Call or email him at the link above.

Adult Education

Rabbi Milkow's current adult education classes on Tuesday evenings at 7 pm are about women in the bible:

The Hidden Lives of Women in the Bible
We are most familiar with our Matriarchs (Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah) and with the prophet Miriam. But there are many other women in the Bible, such as the Serach bat Asher, Tamar, Dina, Shifra, Puah, Bathsheva and Deborah, (to name a few!). We will delve into the lives of a few of these characters to learn about their world and what they might be able to teach us about our own lives.
