Anshe Sfard Kehillat Torah

Welcome to our Wonderful Warm Wisconsin Orthodox Synagogue. 

Anshe Sfard Kehillat Torah (ASKT) is an Orthodox synagogue, located within an eruv, in the North Shore Milwaukee suburb of Glendale, Wisconsin. Our shul was founded in 1986 by 17 families and has since grown to 100 families; many are Shabbat observers who live in close proximity to the shul. We have a daily minyan for Shacharit. Mincha/Maariv meets during all seasons, except for the winter when there is late Maariv instead. Classes, for both men and women, are taught by our rabbi as well as visiting rabbis and community members. We also have well-attended, regular scholar-in-residence programs and many social activities and learning programs, including a women’s monthly Tehillim group. In our participatory shul, members are actively involved in services through leading davening and reading the Torah, and are innovative in creating programming and organizing holiday events. As a Zionistic shul, we incorporate prayers for the IDF and the State of Israel into our davening, and we participate in community-wide Yom Yerushalayim and Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrations.

One of the most impressive things about ASKT is our palpable sense of community. Besides celebrating Shabbat, holidays and Jewish lifecycles together, we are always here for one another. Whether it is a prayer for good health, help finding a new job, babysitting information or milk from the grocery store, the culture in our community is to help without hesitation.

Important information:

As of June 14, 2021 ASKT's Shacharit and Mincha/Maariv minyanim have resumed in person currently in our sanctuary. We look forward to seeing you there. Please take a look at our guidelines prior to arriving.

Weekday Minyan attendees PLEASE sign up prior to attending the minyan by clicking here

Shabbat service attendees PLEASE sign up prior to attending by clicking here

If you would prefer to daven at home – Rabbi Kalmar encourages everyone to daven at the same time that we normally would – Between Mincha and Maariv I would suggest saying the 130th Psalm and other tehillim of your choice.

There is a power to davening at the same time as the entire community.

Amud Yomi Class 1/2 hour before Shacharit (30 minute class).  For those of you who would like to join in - the way to do so is via a free conference call - you can call in and you can join the call.  We are studying Gittin and even if you are coming in in the middle - we would love to have you join us for Gemara.
