Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley

What a Jewish Community Can Be

A welcoming and giving reform congregation committed to social justice, on-going learning, vibrant spirituality, diversity and the State of Israel
Yom Sheini, 1 Av 5777



Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears in a different way. When we pray together, we try to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices. With Rabbi Yael Romer's engaging sermons and stimulating teachings, our Rabbi shows us how the lessons from the past are relevant to our lives today. 

Through a wide range of truly meaningful spiritual experiences, we offer something for everyone, including Weekly Friday Night and Shabbat Services, Tot Shabbat, Junior Congregation High Holy Day Services, weekly Rhinebeck Meditation and Torah Study, and monthly Musical Shabbat Service.

Our services are fully egalitarian (men and women participate equally) and children are always welcome. We believe we have found a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative. Services are primarily in Hebrew. We use both traditional and contemporary melodies. People who attend vary from those with Orthodox backgrounds to Jewish by choice.
