Experiencing Shabbat - Virtually!




As of Friday, October 23, 2020, we are moving forward with our plan to combine certain Shabbat Services with Congregation Or Chadash. We will now alternate hosting Shabbat Services with Congregation Or Chadash, with some services still being hosted individually by one congregation or the other. Whether Temple Emanu-El is hosting or Congregation Or Chadash is hosting, Temple Emanu-El will still hold our Shabbat Gathering via Zoom on Friday nights at 6:15 pm for those who want to join us via Zoom. To register to join us via Zoom for the Gathering or for one of the Shabbat Services that we are scheduled to host, please fill out the form below. 
 
New Experiencing Shabbat Schedule 
 
We are pleased to announce a spiritual experiment to foster a greater sense of community between our two congregations. To get a taste of what Shabbat experiences are for each of our congregations, we shall share our styles alternatively, unless otherwise noted. 
 
Therefore, beginning Friday, October 23, 2020, we invite all of our members to join with one another to celebrate Shabbat a la Or Chadash. We are sharing with you the calendar for alternating Shabbat experiences beginning this week through the end of December.

Torah Study will continue to take place Saturday mornings at 8:30 am. If you are interested in participating in Torah Study, contact Kilian (kilianmetcalf@gmail.com).  
 
If you would like to join us via Zoom for the Shabbat Gathering or for one of the Shabbat Services that Temple Emanu-El is hosting, you can register by 3:00 pm on the Friday afternoon of the service by completing the form below. If you don't want to join via Zoom, or if you don't register by 3:00 pm, you can watch us live here on our website, or via Facebook Live. You do not need to have a Facebook account or download anything in order to watch our services at this link.
