Anshe Emet Synagogue is a sophisticated, urban congregation with a diverse, multi-generational membership. We take a dynamic approach to halachic matters and offer a variety of prayer services, the core of which is a formal service in the great Rabbinic and Cantorial tradition. We also provide a broad range of programming, which includes thought-provoking educational opportunities, presentations by speakers renowned in the Jewish world and fulfilling social justice projects.
Anshe Emet Synagogue is one of the oldest Conservative congregations in Chicago. Founded in 1873, the congregation was originally located on Sedgwick Street. We have been at the present site since 1929 and have a long history of being a center for Torah study, cultural activity, and Israel and social justice advocacy.
