Temple Emanu-El welcomes all who wish to participate in Jewish life: singles, couples, and families in all their forms, interfaith couples, individuals with disabilities, and all people regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or financial means.
The minimum membership dues for the fiscal year beginning June 2021 is:
- $1,750 for single-person households
- $2,300 for households with two or more.
Dues are billed in June each year and cover most aspects of membership in Temple Emanu-El.
SEATING FOR THE HIGH HOLY DAYS
Temple Emanu-El offers the following Open Seating services during the High Holy Days: Young Families services (geared for children Pre-K and under), the Family Worship Service (geared towards K-7), Teen Services, and Shir Chadash. These tickets are automatically sent to member households with children under the age of 18, and available to all other members upon request. Seating at these services is on a first come, first served, basis.
Our classic Emanu-El High Holy Day services, enhanced by our renowned choir and organ, all require reserved seating. Seating is available in both the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary and the Leon Lowenstein Sanctuary. The minimum membership dues amount serves as a credit toward reserved seating; depending on where you prefer to sit, your membership dues may increase. Temple members wishing to add seating to their membership should contact the Membership office at (212) 507-9514.
