An Egalitarian Congregation Rooted in Jewish Tradition

slide show Heska Amuna Synagogue has served the Jewish community of Knoxville, Tennessee for over 100 years. We balance respect for tradition with openness to new ideas and practices.

Our congregation comes together as a family in the warmth of Shabbes, the spirituality of Jewish holy days, and the sharing of life’s important passages.

We are small enough to be personal, but large enough to meet the many needs of a diverse membership. We emphasize education and pride ourselves on the skills of our adult lay leadership and on the accomplishments of our youth.

We welcome all who want to be a part of our family.

Rabbi Ferency
Hi all! I'd love to welcome you for Shabbat, and share my thoughts on "Confronting Danger from Afar." See you soon!
Heska Amuna Synagogue is a sacred home, animated by Jewish tradition:
  • Finding purpose through reflection (Cheshbon HaNefesh);
  • Healing lives through service (Chesed); and
  • Celebrating God with awe and joy (Yirat Shamayim).
