Belief in our Future. Faith in our Temple.
Temple Emanuel is closed in-person, but open in every other way. And that includes our 100th Anniversary Campaign for the Generations. The pandemic has shown us once again how much our Temple community means to all of us. In this time of coming together, even virtually, please remember the 100th Anniversary Campaign. Now, it is more important than ever that our temple is receiving the resources so necessary to ensure we continue to thrive and support the ever-evolving needs of our congregation. If you are in a position to make a commitment to our campaign, you’ll help ensure Temple Emanuel continues to have an impact on your life, your family’s and the community at large for generations to come. Click here to join in.
