As members of Temple Emanu-El, we are blessed to share moments of personal celebration and joy as well as times of struggle and sorrow, together as a congregational family. Emanu-El Cares invites members to lend support,
through a variety of meaningful opportunities, to fellow congregants.

Have an Aliyah
An aliyah (Torah blessing) can done to honor a special moment in your life. To get more involved in the Torah service by reciting the blessings, or even through taking on the fulfilling challenge of reading Torah on Shabbat morning, please contact Clergy Assistant Johnny Maldonado.
Celebrate During Services
To have an aufruf (wedding blessing) or to celebrate a baby naming as part of a worship service, please call Rabbi Joshua Davidson’s assistant, Elizabeth Fevrin, at (212) 507-9609. Be sure to specify what you are celebrating!
Remember Loved Ones
Now that Emanu-El broadcasts its own services over the Internet, we are able to accommodate all congregants who wish to share Sabbath services and have the name of a loved one read during Kaddish. If you wish to have a name read, then please contact one of the rabbis during the week of yahrzeit observance.
