Summer Shabbat Speaker Series
Be a Shabbat summer speaker this July/August at Temple Emanuel.

During the summer months we invite Temple Emanuel members to deliver a D’var Torah during Shabbat services. Speakers have addressed our community about their personal stories, both triumphs and trials, their professions, recent trips, Jewish identity, and of course, their individual take on the weekly Torah portion.

If you have an interest in speaking this summer to our community, or if you know an Emanuel member with an interesting story you'd like to hear, please click the link to sign up for a date.
We kindly ask that you:
- Stay home if you are not feeling well
- Remain masked and physically distanced when in the building. Rather than a cloth mask, we encourage you to wear an N95/KN95 or surgical mask.
As per our new Covid policy, there will be unvaccinated congregants in the building. As a reminder, there will be dedicated "fully-vaccinated only" spaces in our prayer services and during Kiddush.  
Temple Emanu-El continues to make safety and security a top priority. Our overall security plan includes, but is not limited to, restricted access to the building at all times and armed security. Most recently, we installed emergency panic alarm buttons throughout the building as well as an emergency public address system. We hope that our safety measures bring everyone a measure of comfort and confidence.
