Celebrate the Creation of the World at Minglewood Farm & Nature Preserve. Come enjoy a time that fuses prayer, study, walking, and eating on a beautiful property. We will discuss the timely and insightful call to action ” We Are The Weather” by Johnathan Safran Foer, in which he explores reasonable and necessary lifestyle changes as a part of doing Earth Teshuvah (repentance). Venue is easily accessible for those with mobility challenges.
*Start and End times are approximate.
On the first Friday of each month, we will continue Kabbalat Shabbat Services at 6:00PM. After nearly 3 years we bid adieu to our First Friday Shabbat-Luck Potluck style Dinners. In lieu of the potluck style first Friday dinners we will be having periodic Shabbat Dinners throughout the year. Our new Shabbat Dinners will be sponsored by one of our committees or groups. There will be a cost for dinner and the net proceeds will support the initiatives of that group.
Upcoming Shabbat Dinners:
During the summer time, we gather at 5:30 PM for a Early “wine-and-cheese” Oneg, followed by Kabbalat Shabbat service “in the round” at 6:00 PM, with a Torah reading service.
Tot Shabbat has returned to Temple Emanuel. This 30 minute service is geared to families with young children, toddlers, and babies. Rabbi Mark Cohn will make this an enjoyable and meaningful experience for everyone. We will resume on Friday, September 20, 2019.
Join us for Kabbalat Shabbat (receiving the Sabbath) service, filled with music, prayer, a Torah service and an opportunity to celebrate creation. The service will be followed by an Oneg, providing refreshments and another opportunity to build relationships with members, guests and visitors.
Shabbat morning services will be held when we have a bar or bat mitzvah or when there is a special program. Upcoming Shabbat Morning Services at 10:00 AM in the Temple Sanctuary:
We will walk, meditate, sing, pray, hear a story and mark Havdalah – outdoors in nature. This Shabbat celebration is appropriate for all ages.
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.
