Freedom Concert - Save the Date
Saturday, January 16th, 2021 // 7pm

This year, we've embraced the theme of Black Lives Matter. In our congregation, we share a desire to help all people become free. We will be joined by Elana Arian, Michelle Citrin, Saul Kaye, Dan Nichols, and Cantor Natalie Young as we we will honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and our commitment as a congregation to Black Lives Matter.

November 18 - December 18

Once again, Temple Emanu-El is partnering with Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley to fulfill the Chanukah and holiday wishes of families and seniors who would otherwise go without gifts. To maintain the safety of JFS staff, volunteers and clients during COVID 19, this year Temple Emanu-El is sponsoring an online virtual dreidel board.
