Tauber Ikarim (Electives)

Ikarim (Electives) are eight-week classes on topics in Jewish history, thought, and Bible. Join the Emanu-El Clergy on Thursday evenings to engage in dynamic study opportunities.

iEngage: The Engaging Israel Project

Congregation Emanu-El in collaboration with the Contemporary Jewish Museum and the Jewish Community Relations Council Introduces iEngage 


The goal of the iEngage Project is to respond to growing feelings of disenchantment and disinterest toward Israel among an ever-increasing number of Jews worldwide by creating a new narrative regarding the significance of Israel for Jewish life. Join the Emanu-El Clergy in text study and discussion around ideas for this new narrative.
