Pack Emergency Food Bags for Jewish Family Services
Saturday Morning Fun Club
Saturday Mornings at our Temple are so very special. Most Shabbat mornings, in the Sanctuary and the Chapel, our wonderful B’nai Mitzvah students are standing before their family and friends and leading the congregation in prayers, teaching what they learned, and reading from the Torah for the first time.
The outdoors has served as such great therapy for all of us over the past year, where we could breathe fresh air and stretch our legs after spending way too much time indoors. That said, with more people spending time in our parks and less organized park clean-ups, there has also been a build-up of litter in our forests and streams. We should remember how inextricably linked our human health is with the very ecosystems that support us.

Rise Against Hunger
Each year at Temple Emanu-El, we team up with Rise Against Hunger, an international humanitarian organization. Not only do we raise thousands of dollars, but we also pack pack 20,000 meals for families who are in need right from our own building. This program typically takes place in December and is perfect for families of all ages.
