Worship Services


Sabbath services at Temple Emanu-El are held Friday evenings
at 6 PM (EST/EDT) and Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM.




During the months of July and August, Sabbath services are held in the Beth-El Chapel. Worship start times remain the same. We will return to the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary in September. An organ recital precedes Friday evening services, starting at 5:45 PM, and Saturday morning services, starting at 10:15 AM. An Oneg Shabbat follows all Friday evening services. Our weekly Sabbath morning Torah study also will resume in September.

Now available: Live streaming!

Worship services from the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary now may be watched via live video stream. Archived videos may be accessed by clicking the “stack menu” icon at the top right of the viewer.




A Note About Our Sanctuaries...

Temple Emanu-El is proud to provide an induction loop system in our Fifth Avenue sanctuaries to assist those members of our congregation as well as visitors who may be hard of hearing. Hearing aids must be switched to the “T” (telecoil) setting. Infrared assistance listening devices also are available for use in all of our sanctuaries, including Greenwald Hall and Leon Lowenstein. Portable receivers and headsets or neck loops are available from a lobby attendant or usher; picture ID is required.



Are you part of a congregation or other group (generally 10 people or more) planning on visiting Emanu-El during worship services?

Please alert us to your date of arrival so that we may welcome you!
