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.
