Covid-19 Update, as of December 27, 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: Starting January 7, 2022, we will require a one-time proof of full vaccination (this includes the booster)—either your CDC vaccination card or a photo of the card—or a negative rapid test taken on the day of the event. 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. Pre-registration for Services is no longer required. You will still be able to join us virtually on LiveStream.

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

Special Focus Groups

United Jewish Appeal

The Winston-Salem United Jewish Appeal is the only Jewish philanthropic agency in Winston-Salem. It raises money each year for important programs locally, nationally and internationally. A part of the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), The Winston-Salem UJA is considered a “network community.” That means that we are one of several hundred smaller Jewish communities throughout the U.S. who do not have an established “federation,” but nonetheless raise money and support Jewish causes almost solely through volunteer efforts.

For more information on the network visit:

On an international level, The WSUJA sends funds overseas to support vital programs in Israel, the former Soviet Union, and any country where there are Jews in need. Many of the programs provide basic services such as food and health care. Other programs provide for education and cultural enrichment. On a statewide level, we support the North Carolina Hillel organization and the North Carolina Anti-Defamation League, as well as Jewish causes throughout the state. Locally we support many programs at Temple Emanuel which would not be possible without additional funding, and independent programs such as the PJ Library.

Each fall the WSUJA conducts a campaign to raise vital funds, and we hope that you will consider making an annual pledge. Donations can be sent to:
