Sabbath services at Temple Emanu-El are held Friday evenings at 6 PM (EST/EDT) and Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary (Fifth Avenue at 65th Street), unless noted otherwise. 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. On Saturdays at 9:15 AM, worshipers are invited to join us for our Weekly Torah Study. Enter at the Marvin and Elisabeth Cassell Community House, One East 65th Street.

Friday D’var Torah:
Rabbi Joshua Davidson and

Saturday Sermon:
Rabbinic Intern Toba Schaller

Rabbi Micky (Michael) Boyden of Kehilat Yonatan Reform Congregation in Hod Hasharon, Israel, near Tel Aviv, writes regularly for The Jerusalem Post and is a frequent guest speaker in North America and Europe, where he addresses issues related to the Israel/ Palestinian conflict and the challenges facing liberal Judaism in Israel. Kehilat Yonatan is a recipient of support from our Philanthropic Fund. Learn more about Rabbi Boyden »

In June 2015, Temple Emanu-El began using at services an updated version of the Union Prayer Book with gender-sensitive poetry and prose, as well as contemporary idioms and transliterated Hebrew. This offprint was created for us by Rabbi Howard Berman, executive director of the Society for Classical Reform Judaism and co-editor of The Union Prayer Book: Sinai Edition, Revised, the contemporary-language version published in 2012. In February 2016, Rabbi Berman was our scholar in residence to discuss “Liturgical Evolution and the Union Prayer Book” and to lead us in a community conversation about Temple Emanu-El’s liturgical journey.

Temple members who wish to express their thoughts about what they value in a prayer book should send a message to our rabbis.
