Emanu-El Cares

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.

The welcoming of a new child or grandchild, an engagement, a wedding or the death of a loved one — these are all moments worthy of marking. In the case of illness (yourself or someone else), let us know if we may visit you at home or in the hospital. A simple phone call or the click of an email is all it takes to keep in touch when you need us. Send a message »

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 the Membership Office.

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, Jill Weiner, 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, please send us a message.
