We have a wonderful kosher kitchen and, in our well-known tradition of creatively taking care of body and soul, a dedicated Kitchen Director, too! If you have questions about using our kitchen or kashrut at Heska Amuna, ask our Kitchen Director Kimberly Ault, or read our kashrut guidelines *here* (and if you have any comments just let us know.)

And just a reminder: to preserve the kashrut of our synagogue, we ask everyone to (1) please fill out a request to use the building for your meeting or event and (2) please obseve the Potluck Policy (click here to read it!) when bringing in any food or drinks into classrooms, offices, the library, or Sid’s Cafe (or for your Potluck events held in the Rosen Social Hall, too). 


Let us know if you have any questions we can answer!

Thank you to everyone who joined us and made our Kallah outstanding! Read all about it.

(And special thanks to our Kallah photographer extraordinaire, Jack Benhayon)

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.  ha_logo_263x300

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).
