In response to COVID-19, we are temporarily closing our buildings until further notice. All Kabbalat Shabbat services will be held online via Live Stream. Check the Temple Emanuel calendar for the latest information on scheduled events and virtual connection opportunities.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
