Reminder to order your Luah this week!
What’s a luah? This annual publication, similar to the Farmer’s Almanac, lays out the year but instead of weather and fun facts for agrarians, it lays out the year for all of our services. But the luah is not just a list of prayers, Torah readings or haftorot; it is also a fascinating look into why we recite the prayers we do. Was 5779 a leap year? Yes! Will 5780 be a leap year, too? Add your own copy of the luah to our synagogue order and find out!
Click *here* to order your Luah today or call the office. Orders are due by Wednesday, July 24.
Let us know if you have any questions we can answer!
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.
- 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).
