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.

Shabbat Morning Moadon

Saturdays | 10:00 AM | In-person and via Zoom*

On Saturdays with no special events, Temple Emanuel’s Rabbi Mark Cohen hosts a Shabbat Morning Moadon, online and in-person. All sessions will include opening and closing prayers, including Kaddish. The focus of the gathering will be on the weekly Torah portion in light of contemporary sources and media.
Led by Rabbi Mark Cohn with occasional visits from other teachers. Moadon (מועדון) means “lounge” – but the root of the word is knowledge. Pronounced: moe-ah-DOAN (rhymes with tone, phone and groan).

*Moadon will be held in-person on the first Saturday of each month in the Sanctuary. All sessions will be available via Zoom.

From the rabbi

Jews set up three things when they establish a community: a cemetery, a school, and a synagogue. One is to handle the inevitable, one is to provide for the future and one is to gather. And gather is what we do. For all of the cycles of life and the holy days and moments of our communal life.

We are very proud of our Jewish history and community here in Winston-Salem. We welcome you to our website and would love to welcome you to our physical site as well if you are in search of exploring Jewish life here in the Twin City.

–Rabbi Mark Cohn
