Summer at Temple Emanuel
Temple Emanuel holds daily minyan services twice each day to provide for the spiritual needs not only of its members but of the entire Jewish Community.
Our minyan is egalitarian, with participation available to everyone at his or her level of ability.
During the summer months when so many of us are out on vacation, please make a special effort to attend our Daily Evening Minyan, Sunday through Thursday nights at 7:30 pm.
And, join us at Shabbat morning services when our group is especially warm and intimate. Click here for full service times.
On Sunday nights after minyan, be sure to join us for "Sundaes on Sundays!" Enjoy a scoop, some whipped cream, a little chocolate sauce...what could be better on a hot summer night!
See you there! Click here for full service times.
Interested in Summer Learning?
Join us for "Summer Shul" -- lay led Torah Study before Shabbat morning services each week from June 25 through September 3 from 8:30 to 9:30 am. Each Shabbat, Summer Shul discussions will focus on lessons taken from that week's Parasha. For further details, or if you'd like to lead a session, please contact Marty Paley.

Chesed Caring Community
We'd love to hear from you if you or a loved one needs a friendly visitor on a regular basis, or perhaps occasional assistance that a warm and caring congregant can provide. Contact Joan Mael if you or a loved one needs assistance; and Lynette Polatin if you are interested in serving as a friendly visitor. Thank you for help to strengthen our Chesed Caring Community.
And, if you can offer a ride to and from Shabbat services to an elder congregant, that would be very helpful, too. Please email Lynette Polatin.
Help meet our Commitment to Feed the Hungry
We need your Help! Family Table is a community-wide mitzvah project of the Temple Emanuel Social Action Committee and is very important to the Jewish Community. Please bring donations of Raisins and Kosher Crackers to the synagogue to help us to meet our monthly commitment to Jewish Family and Children's Services for Family Table to help feed the hungry. Every bit helps!
For more information, please contact Wayne Purnell, Temple Emanuel Family Table Coordinator.
