Temple Emanu-El Happenings
Annual Campaign Update!

Dear Families and Friends of Temple Emanu-El,

L'Shana Tovah!  It was wonderful to see so many of you at our High Holy Day services! The High Holy Days are meaningful because it is a time to reflect on the past year and look forward to all that our Temple can be in the new year.   

There are a lot of exciting programs planned for the new year and the Annual Campaign is an important part of our budget. As you can see, we are off to a fabulous start -- we have reached $27,507!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has already donated. We know we can reach this goal with the support of each and every one of you!

Click below to donate, or call the Administrative Office at (408) 292-0939 if you have any questions.
