Cemetery Yizkor Service

We will remember our loved ones at the Emanu-El Cemetery on Friday, October 9. While tradition tells us to recite Yizkor on the holidays of Yom Kippur and Shmini Atzeret themselves, this year we will say it the morning before so that we may gather together in person to help give us comfort as we recite the liturgy. We will gather at the cemetery and over Zoom to recite the Yizkor service and be comforted by the words of our tradition and being in one another's presence while engaging in this act of remembrance.

Simchat Torah Full Torah Reading

On Simchat Torah we celebrate having completed reading the whole Torah. As our public reading of the Torah on Shabbat was disrupted this year Emanu-El is going to read the first aliyah from every parsha this Simchat Torah (and maybe even a few extra!)! If you are interested in reading a few aliyot, please be in touch with Rabbi Ravski at rabbiravski@emanu-el.com for details.

Shmini Atzeret- Prayer Rocks

Shmini Atzeret is a holiday with one purpose:  to spend it with God in holiness. It is an added day of prayer. In your gift bag, there will be a smooth rock. Before the holiday, decorate it and paint it if you want and attach a personal prayer to it. It can be the same prayer you wrote for Shma Koleinu or a different one. Bring the completed rock to the synagogue before Shmini Atzeret, and we will include it in our brand new Kindness Garden, a space filled with beauty, prayer, and kindness.

Getting Involved

Due to Covid 19, and per our Re-Opening Task Force, attendance to on-site services will be limited to those who are participating (having an Aliya, reading a prayer, leading a service). If you are comfortable being in the building as a participant, please email Daphne Hubara. As feasible, from Rosh Hashanah to Simhat Torah, we hope many can participate on site as service participants despite the limited attendance. We will work to honor all requests.
