COVID-19 UPDATE & INFORMATION WEBPAGE LAUNCH
We have launched a webpage that will serve as our homebase for our "virtual community" and Covid-19 Updates & Information. There are ways to connect with our clergy and each other, as well as resources for a meaningful shabbat experience from your home, and ways to pass the time over the next few weeks. 

Please check the webpage often to see what's new! And hear a special message from Rabbi Goldstein.
CONNECTING WITH OUR "VIRTUAL COMMUNITY"
During this difficult time we will be working to bring Temple Emanuel to you!  One way we will be doing this is by Zoom, a video conferencing system. 

New to Zoom? You can download the application here or you can download it the first time you join a Zoom event.

NOW IS THE TIME TO COME TOGETHER.
In recent weeks we have seen how acting in community interest helps ourselves as much as it helps one another. We remain a community whether or not we are physically present together. Our gifts of care and concern are especially meaningful in this uncertain time. We continue to look to the future and anticipate a time soon when our Temple activities and in-person worship will resume. We will make it through this extraordinary period as we have made it through many crises over the last 100 years. In the meantime, please consider a gift to our 100th Anniversary Campaign for the Generations, which you can make online, without leaving your home at
