At Adath Emanu-El, we welcome Shabbat and Jewish holidays with services filled with participation, beautiful music, learning and celebration. Our services allow people to experience traditional worship, as well as to newcomers, and those who want to learn more about Jewish tradition in a meaningful way. Friday evening services conclude with an Oneg Shabbat, which provides a wonderful opportunity to greet old friends and meet new ones. Saturday morning services are followed by a kiddush.
