From the celebration of new life to the saying of Kaddish, Temple Emanuel is your spiritual family for honoring life cycle events as well as the Jewish holy days. Our rabbi, cantor, religious school teachers, as well as our office staff, assist in the preparation and celebration of B’nai Mitzvah, Confirmation, weddings, Bris and Baby Namings, and funerals. During the year, you will enjoy participating in our meaningful services, including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah, Purim, Passover and other events which honor and celebrate the history of our people.
On Friday evenings in our sanctuary, we use Mishkan Tefillah – the Reform Movement’s prayerbook and a range of contemporary and traditional musical styles. Our Shabbat morning Chapel service uses Siddur Lev Shalom, the Conservative Movement prayerbook when it meets, and conducts a conservative-style service chanted almost entirely in Hebrew. Sometimes a congregant offers a D’var Torah (literally, a “word” of Torah) to share a message about the weekly Torah portion. Sometimes this group also meets for Torah study.
Our Shabbat morning Sanctuary service takes place at 10:30 am when we are celebrating B’nai Mitzvah, using Mishkan Tefillah, and featuring our students who lead us through much of the service.
All are welcome to any of our services! Please join us.
