Walking Together: Making Community
We wanted to design a spiritual initiative to help us confront uncertainty and fear in pursuit of healing and wholeness, as well as build a stronger community while advancing our congregational mission. To that end, we announce 5959 Online: Your Virtual Village.
Making Community, Healing the Soul, Enlightening the Mind, and Lifting the Spirit.
Welcome to the Village! Your presence is a blessing!
A Message from Our Leadership
We are excited to be a part of such a warm and vibrant congregation that has served the Chicago reform community for 140 years!
Emanuel Congregation continues to grow and emphasize our value of building community, celebrating our joyous events and comforting one another in our sorrows. Inspired by the richness of our collective Jewish past, we offer a contemporary focus on Jewish ritual, values, and heritage as we embrace our commitment to a tradition while creating our own individual connection to our Jewish future.
Emanuel Congregation is the place to explore what it means to be a Jew in the twenty-first century. Regardless of what reasons motivate you to pursue your religious beliefs, our goal is to have a place for everyone.
