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.
