Welcome to Melrose B'nai Israel Emanu-El


Melrose B’nai Israel Emanu-El is the small, haimish, traditional, egalitarian congregation that extends warmth and welcomes a range of diverse ideas so that people of all ages will know they are valued, participate and feel spiritually uplifted. We are a United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism (USCJ) congregation

We invite you to join our warm and welcoming community: The Little Shul with a BIG Heart!




The Mitzvah Food Pantry is gratefully accepting donations of kosher non-perishable food or food gift cards of any denomination to local grocery stores. Please drop off your food in the box in our synagogue lobby. For gift card donations, please place them in a sealed envelope labeled “Food Pantry” and leave them in the synagogue office. Email Helaine & Steven Zlotnick or call synagogue office for more information.
