Masks are now optional for services and events in the Sanctuary Building, but are still required in the Education Building (Office, Preschool, Religious School). Please visit the COVID-19 Resources page for the latest COVID guidelines for Temple Emanuel.
Questions, please contact our office at 336-722-6640 or by email.
The Temple Emanuel COVID-19 Recovery Task Force has disbanded for now as COVID case numbers in our state continue to fall. We will post updates as they come in. For now, please note the following:
In some cases, you may be asked to sign in before a Service or event for contact tracing purposes. We will continue with “ToGoNegs” – an individually, pre-packaged snack to take home following Services. For those who do not wish to attend in-person services, you will still be able to join us virtually on LiveStream.
We continue to strike the balance between our desire to gather and the safety of our sacred community. We strongly encourage everyone who has not been vaccinated to do so, including children 5 years and older.

The accumulating clinical evidence supports the view that the Delta variant of COVID-19 has the potential to cause illness in a group of vaccinated individuals who have chronic respiratory or cardiovascular disease. We encourage vaccinated temple members with such conditions to speak with their doctor about attending Temple Emanuel activities.
