A Conservative Congregation that is anything but...


Exuberant and harmonious singing, teaching and discussions, meditation, drumming and chanting, are all

part of Shabbat at Emanu-El.  Whether you are looking for a traditional Shabbat service led by our Rabbis

and Cantor in the Sanctuary, or the lay-led Minyan Hadash, or Soulful Shabbat with meditative practices,

we have something for everyone.  In addition to our spirited Kabbalat Shabbat service we offer Shabbat

Chai once a month, an interactive service featuring musical instruments.  Of course, we also offer many

programs for children and young families, including Junior Congregation, Tot Shabbat/Mini-Minyan, Family

Services and EKS (Early Kabbalat Shabbat).
