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

This month is the holiday of Tu B'shevat (literally the 15th of the Hebrew month of Shevat). It is also called the Festival of the Trees, because it is the time in Israel (believe it or not!) when they are planting trees. It is customary for Jews in the diaspora to buy trees to plant there, in honor of a loved one or special occasion. We will be celebrating at CEEW on Sunday, January 24th with a Seder for all ages at 10 a.m. Join us for this or for a Friday night service in the future!

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 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.
