Heska Amuna Synagogue has served the Jewish community of Knoxville, Tennessee for over 130 years. We balance respect for tradition with openness to new ideas and practices. We come 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 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 to be a part of our family.

NEW!  3-part Series on the After-life

For some, the question of what happens after we die is the defining philosophical conundrum we face. Join with us to explore the evolution of opinions and theories permeating Judaism.
