Shabbat Services with Special Guest Speaker Ms. Gaya Nir, from ELEM: Youth in Distress in Israel

Welcome to Temple Emanu-El. During Saturday morning Shabbat services, we will be joined by special guest speaker Ms. Gaya Nir, from ELEM: Youth in Distress in Israel.

Ms. Nir is the program manager of ELEM’s newest program called Breathing Spaces, which offers mental health support in an informal setting. The program was launched two days after the October 7 attacks and serves evacuated youth from the South and the North of Israel, including those who survived the massacre at the Nova Music Festival. Some of these youth have witnessed family members, neighbors, and friends being murdered or kidnapped. Ms. Nir will be sharing first-hand experiences and stories of the youth and their families, as well as how ELEM has been working in communities to treat the trauma.

Whether near or far, we would be honored if you would stand with our congregation and celebrate Shabbat with us. Services are every Friday at 6:00 PM and Saturday at 10:30 AM. All Shabbat and Holiday services are livestreamed on Experience Emanu-El, Facebook, and YouTube.
