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.

Introduction to Judaism is for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of Jewish life through a Reform lens. Open to all, this course is designed for individuals and couples from Jewish and various faith traditions and cultural backgrounds and those who have had no religious upbringing. This course is perfect for interfaith couples, those raising Jewish children, spiritual seekers, individuals considering conversion, and Jews who want a meaningful adult Jewish learning experience.

Together we will explore Jewish holidays and life-cycle ceremonies, Jewish beliefs and values, prayer and Jewish texts, the Holocaust, modern Israel, the American Jewish experience, and the tapestry of Jewish people today.

The virtual class is being taught by Rabbi Stephanie Bernstein and begins January 4, 2020.
