From Cantor Lindsay
Dear Temple Emanuel Friends,

I hope that everyone is staying healthy and virtually connected to friends and family during these challenging times.

As we incorporate social distancing into our lives, it is all too easy to feel alone and isolated.  Yet, social distancing does not have to equate with spiritual distancing.  To that end, I encourage you to find ways that make you feel connected to others, and to Adonai.  Take a walk, meditate, call your family, facetime a friend, and know that you are not alone.


Temple Emanuel continues to look for ways to make connections: to learning, to Judaism, to each other.  Please check back often as we update this list of On-Line Opportunities.

Temple Emanuel is honored to continue our tradition of helping SOME provide Christmas meals to their homeless and indigent clients.  Despite some logistical changes this year, Temple Emanuel will happily and generously provide the turkeys and cookies as we have for the last 40+ years.  We are asking congregants to prepare turkeys and cookies at home, and then these will be delivered to SOME on Christmas day.
Val Fagen will be in the Temple parking lot to collect Christmas turkeys and cookies for SOME (So Others Might Eat)
*Please stay in your car until you are in the front of the cart and it’s safe to exit.
