Temple Emanu-El is pleased to offer a variety
of worship opportunities to serve your needs and schedule.
For those who would like a moment of prayer during the week, Congregation Emanu-El offers a Sunset Service, held Sunday through Thursday at 5:30 PM in Greenwald Hall. (Enter at One East 65th Street.)
Shir Chadash (“A New Song”) is a periodic Friday evening service in a new style. This service features a contemporary liturgy interspersed with Chasidic tales and other teachings. The music, led by a vocalist and instrumentalists, is informal and participatory. All are welcome!
For our preschool through second grade families, Tot Shabbat offers a creative and age-appropriate service that incorporates singing, movement and storytelling. And new this year, Baby Shabbat is a 30-minute program for younger siblings of Nursery School children and any others younger than 33 months.
At Shabbat Kodesh Family Worship Services, Hebrew prayers are sung with lively melodies, and we experience the weekly Torah reading through a dramatic yet humorous interpretation. All are welcome at this service, which builds upon the curriculum and community of the Religious School. Services are followed by an Oneg Shabbat. (See the Shabbat Kodesh Calendar of Worship Services.)
At Saviv Shabbat, we explore the cutting edge of experimental Jewish ritual. Through a combination of traditional prayers, popular songs, new Jewish rock, silent prayer and learning, we push the limits of prayer as we strive to connect with God and one another. Dinner follows some services. Saviv Shabbat is for people in their 20s and 30s.
