Sabbath services at Temple Emanu-El are held Friday evenings at 6 PM (EST/EDT) and Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM. 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 One East 65th Street.

As part of Temple Emanu-El’s ongoing interfaith dialogue with Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, we welcome the
Reverend Dr. Scott Black Johnston and members of the church for our 6 PM service, followed by dinner and conversation. Temple members who want to join us for dinner should contact Jill Weiner at [email protected] or (212) 507-9609.

In June 2015, Temple Emanu-El began using 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.
Temple members who wish to express their thoughts about what they value
in a prayer book should send a message to our rabbis.
