Important Reminder About Yom Kippur Seating!

October 3 and 4

The Temple is at its busiest during Yom Kippur and especially at our Contemporary Yizkor Service. Although we do our best to accommodate everyone, please note that seating is first come, first served. Once capacity is met, those who cannot be seated in the Martin Meyer Sanctuary will be asked to attend Yizkor in the Main Sanctuary. 

Share Your Fall Harvest With Emanu-El!

Yom Kippur (Saturday, October 4)

Help us decorate our Temple and Sukkah for Sukkot! We are looking for pumpkins, gourds, squash apples, and citrus fruit to help celebrate the biggest Jewish Harvest festival of the year. Crates will be available on Yom Kippur day by the fountain in the courtyard.
