Ours is a congregation with a rich history, having served and led
the New York Jewish community for more than a century and a half.
As Pirkei Avot teaches us, “The world stands on three things:
Torah, Avodah and G’milut Chasadim [study, worship and deeds of lovingkindness].”
So, too, the synagogue. At Temple Emanu-El, we encourage our members, young and old, to gather in an atmosphere both warm and awe-inspiring, as we share our moments of joy as well as our times of sadness, immerse ourselves in the richness and beauty of our tradition, and act upon our tradition’s values in the world around us.

If you already are part of our community, then I would enjoy getting to know you better as well, to learn from you about the passions and commitments that inspire your involvement, and to gain an understanding of how Temple Emanu-El can further engage and stimulate those interests.
So, if you are in the neighborhood, please come and visit; our Sabbath services are open to all. And, if you are able to visit us only online, then enjoy our worship through our live-streaming feed. Either way, we embrace you as part of our Emanu-El family.
Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson
