At the time of death, as well as during a period of illness, family members need the comfort, support and caring of a community.
Temple Emanu-El’s clergy and staff always are available to speak with Temple members and their families to help soothe these difficult hours. Because there are many ways to honor a loved one, the rabbis and cantor can provide guidance that is suited to your family’s personal philosophy.
Should a death occur between 8 AM and 6 PM, any day of the week, call the synagogue at (212) 744-1400 and ask to be connected to the Temple Administrative Office; please tell the receptionist that you are calling about a death. At all other hours, call the same telephone number, but press “1” once the recording is heard; your call will be answered by someone at the Temple's Universal Funeral Chapel.
