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.
COMMUNITY AS FAMILY
Having caring family nearby can be an invaluable practical and emotional support for older people, especially those living alone.
Congregants age 48 onward without close family are invited to Community as Family (CAF), a cordial, confidential group that empowers its members to navigate the changes and challenges of getting older. CAF encourages community-building via deeper engagement in temple life through its many opportunities for friendship, worship, learning, and volunteering.
Community as Family will meet on Mondays from 6 PM to 7:30 PM on the following dates throughout the 2018-19 season:
- March 25
- April 22
- May 20
Light refreshments will be served, and there are no commercial endorsements. Participation is open to temple members only. RSVP to or (212) 507-9603.
