Shalosh Regalim (The Three Festivals)

Anshe Emet provides a wide-range of activities in preparation for Sukkot, Pesach and Shavuot for young and old. Our services are similar to Shabbat, but each has its own musical and theological personality. Geshem, the prayer for rain on Shemini Atzeret (holiday immediately following Sukkot), Tal, the prayer for dew on Passover, and, of course, Yizkor, the prayer of remembrance of loved ones, are mystical moments that should not be missed. Simchat Torah, immediately following Shemini Atzeret, is a special treat for young children, with the parading of the Torahs and special silly tunes to prayers. Please join us!
To chant Torah or lead a part of a Festival service, or for more information, please contact Naomi Weiss at [email protected]/773-868-5113.
Anshe Emet observes Hannukah, Purim, Yom Ha'atzmaut (Israel Independence Day), Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), Tu B'Shevat (New Year for the Trees), Tisha B'Av (the Ninth of Av), and Rosh Chodesh (New Moon), fully embracing the whole of the Jewish year and cycle.
Purim night is a noisy celebration full of excitement and laughter as we listen to the Megillah (Scroll of Esther) and watch performances in costumes. 
If you are interested in learning how to chant the Megillah for Purim, or Eicha (Lamentations) for Tisha B'Av, please contact Naomi Weiss at [email protected]/773-868-5113
Rosh Chodesh is celebrated in Daily Minyan, which begins at 6:50am on those weekday mornings to accommodate Torah readings and Hallel (the special prayer of praise).
