Covid-19 Update, as of August 25, 2021.

The Temple Emanuel COVID-19 Recovery Task Force consults with immunologist Dr. Steve Mizel and other medical professionals to develop our safety measures in response to COVID-19. Please note the following: We have reinstated mask-wearing at all temple events, inside the Education Building and administrative offices, and at all outdoor events when children are present. At Services, we welcome an unlimited number of fully-vaccinated Temple Emanuel members and visitors, but please be aware that physical distancing is required indoors. In some cases, you may be asked to sign in before a Service or event for contact tracing purposes; however, pre-registration for Services is no longer required. You will still be able to join us virtuall on LiveStream.

Questions, please contact our office at 336-722-6640 or by email.

Groups for Young and Older Adults


The Mavens is a group organized by our temple’s seniors who enjoy associating with other seniors. Maven is a Yiddish word meaning an expert with many years of experience. If you’re at least 55 years old and would like to participate in interesting programs, then bring your own lunch and join us on the second Thursday of each month at noon at Temple Emanuel. (Beverages, fruit, and delicious desserts provided!) The group offers monthly opportunities year-round to get together and bond with other senior adults.


Monthly programs might include:

  • Speakers and panel discussions
  • Musical programs, singalongs, and concerts
  • Field trips and excursions
  • Jewish learning programs
  • Yoga and exercise
  • Health seminars
  • Holiday celebrations
  • Ongoing activities to help others
  • Fun and fellowship!

Call the Temple office at (336) 722-6640 or e-mail us for more information, or keep checking this website for details about future programs.
