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 virtually on LiveStream.

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


Religious School

Welcome to the 5782/2021-22 Temple Emanuel Religious School year. Our staff is very excited about the upcoming year. We are currently operating in-person classes as of August, 2021. The safety of our students and staff will always be our top priority. Religious School follows all recommendations of the Temple Emanuel Covid-19 Recovery Task Force. We ask that families continue to be flexible as our ability to be in-person may change depending on factors beyond our control. For now, we are enjoying Bagel Breakfasts in Menorah Valley together!

Our teachers are working hard to plan community building, engaging, Jewish educational experiences for our students and families. We hope to see you soon!

Please contact Becky DePalma, Religious School Director at or 336- 722-6640 (ext. 102) if you have any questions.
