President's Message


Welcome to Temple Emanu-El!


Whether you are already a member, considering becoming a member or just visiting, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you.


My wife Margie and I have been members of the Temple for 25 years and have found it to be an extraordinarily welcoming community, one that reaches out to its members in very broad and deep ways. There is something for everyone at Emanu-el! We have programs for families with young children, educational opportunities for children, teens and adults, cultural activities of all sorts, opportunities to engage in social action, and of course, many ways to engage in worship. Whether you are looking for a traditional Shabbat service led by our Rabbis and Cantor in the Sanctuary, or the lay-led Minyan Hadash, or Soulful Shabbat with meditative practices, we have something for everyone. We have a Junior Congregation service and an early morning Shabbat service at 8 AM. In addition to a traditional Kabbalat Shabbat service we offer Shabbat Chai once a month, an interactive service featuring musical instruments. Our weekday minyan meets twice a day throughout the year. On High Holidays, three distinct services are complemented by Family Services, Junior Congregation and specially designed activities for young children. I invite you to learn more about all of our activities by exploring our website.


Whether you are already a member or are considering joining, I would be very happy to speak to you. Do not hesitate to contact me with any suggestions, questions or concerns. I can be reached at
