Emanu-El In The Neighborhood

Emanu-El in the Neighborhood is drawing national attention for its innovative approach to community building. Our goal is to let our neighbors know they are not alone and facilitate opportunities to meet, celebrate, and care for one another in our neighborhoods, as well as at the Temple. To be Jewish is to be in community.

Will You Host a Potluck Celebration for Your Neighbors?

Emanu-El in the neighborhood is one way to connect our members with one another. Invite your neighbors to share a potluck havdalah, shabbat dinner or brunch or a Chanukah celebration. If interested, please contact Jennifer Goldstein.

Nick and TaliIt’s Easy to Be a Host
We just hosted a Shabbat Dinner at our home two weeks ago and had an absolutely fabulous time. We felt blessed to be part of such a vibrant Jewish community, and to do our part in helping that community grow. It was also great to meet new people in our neighborhood, and to know a few more people at Temple. Overall, a top experience that we hope to repeat in the near future. I couldn’t be more effusive in my recommendation to host one of these dinners.
