As part of our commitment to the safety of our congregants, we have compiled all necessary and important information here regarding the temporary suspension of programs, religious services and in-person social gatherings.
We continue to monitor the fluid situation brought on by the international outbreak of COVID-19, and we are intent on following the guidelines of local and national health agencies and implementing best practices. Because of this, we have made a decision to suspend all in-person social gathering, programs and religious services at Temple Emanuel until further notice. During this time, you can find Shabbat services online at YouTube, Facebook and a wide-range of programming on JewItAtHome.com
.Our ECC program is also suspended until further notice. Classroom instruction in our religious school is also suspended; however, our teachers will provide students with engaging at-home lessons and activities.
Individual meetings with clergy and tutors will either be scheduled to meet virtually or rescheduled.
