Sponsorships available!
It is appropriate that we pause and reflect upon all we have to be grateful for as individuals, as the Emanuel family and our larger community.

This book will be filled with artwork, stories, inspirational messages, words of gratitude, Jewish wisdom, prayers, and memorials to those lost to the pandemic. DETAILS
Yom HaShoah and Brotherhood Yellow Candles
We hope everyone lit the Yellow Yahrzeit Candle on April 27. The Brotherhood Yellow Candle Program is to remind us of the Holocaust and the atrocities that occurred.
Brotherhood distributes all donations in excess of their costs to support Holocaust education programs such as Voices of Hope and the Greenberg Center at the University of Hartford.
If you have already made a contribution, thank you very much. If you have not, we hope you will make a donation to support these important institutions.
