Shalom, and welcome to Congregation Emanu-El of Waukesha!

This month, we will be celebrating the Holiday of Pesach, which tells the story of our liberation from Egypt as slaves. Pesach begins Friday evening, April 22nd through the evening of April 29th. Please join us on April 23rd, at 6 p.m. for the second night seder (see details in the calendar). I will be leading an interactive Seder with explanations of the customs, lots of songs, and of course, the search for the afikommen! I will also be leading a traditional Yizkor service, on Friday, April 29th, at 6:30 p.m., preceding the regular service at 7 p.m.

Congregation Emanu-El offers a full range of programs and activities for the Jewish community, in addition to regular Shabbat and holiday services. Our religious school serves students from preschoolers to teenagers, our adult education committee sponsors a variety of programs, and our social action committee engages our members in activities that benefit the surrounding communities. We also have a gift shop that carries a wide variety of Jewish items, including holiday necessities.
