Temple Emanu-El Happenings
Announcements
Dear Friends and Family,

We are officially live streaming!

A few weeks ago, we set up our sanctuary to have live streaming. Now you can join us for a Shabbat service from the comfort of your own home!

While you can't get food at oneg through the live stream (it's too bad, they really need to invent that), you can keep up with Temple happenings and be part of our beautiful Shabbat services.

Click below to check out the live streaming page. It is now easily accessible through our website at www.TempleSanJose.org/LiveStreaming .

Happy streaming!

Your Friends at Temple Emanu-El
