Programming

It’s easy to make friends at Emanu-El through its many ongoing programs. These include participation in services, hosting annual Scholar-In-Residence and Artist-In-Residence weekends, Shabbat dinners, and family events focused around the Jewish Holidays. Members of Synagogue Emanu-El play an integral role in the activities of the Jewish community and the Charleston community-at-large.

Most of the above events are held in our large social hall, which can seat 150 diners. The facilities includes kosher kitchens and are available to members of the congregation for Simchas and special events.

Adult Education

The Synagogue also sponsors a variety of adult study programs, including Hebrew instruction, mini-courses and in-depth study on a wide range of topics. Classes are held on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM at Synagogue Emanu-El.

Membership in Synagogue Emanu-El Men’s Club is open to any member of the Jewish community who is 18 years of age or older.
