                                     A Year in the Life at Temple Emeth

 

Thanks to Barbara Balkin for putting together a slideshow of our past year. Over the last year, we came together to pray, to laugh, to eat, to study, to mourn, to enjoy art and music, to dance, to watch movies, to do Tikkun Olam, to travel, to cook, and to discuss. We are a family that embraces diversity. We are a family of young and old and everything in between. We are a family of people from all backgrounds praying, learning, and working together to make the world a better place.

Despite the pandemic, we had a busy year. Click here to view our 2020-21 Annual Meeting Slideshow.

Our Honor Roll celebrates our 2020-2021 volunteers.  Thank you all!
