Temple Emanuel offers support for the blessings and celebrations of life, as well as times of sorrow.
From bris and baby-naming ceremonies to weddings, from bar and bat mitzvahs to conversions, every event is as unique as the individual who celebrates it and the journey they took to get there, while it is universally tied to Judaism and those who have gone before. Preparations and arrangements are as adaptable as they are supportive, and we embrace every person’s path to TEMV.
TEMV also provides support in the event of illness or death in the family. In the case of an illness, members of the community are often available to offer rides to medical appointments, bring food, or help in other ways the person or family find useful. Our lay bereavement counselors will not only lend an ear and a shoulder, but will also help with the practical aspects of handling a death, such as notifying people and arranging for and leading shiva.
