Join us for "Searching For My Yiddishe Mama: Sacrifice and Assimilation" with Cantor Tilem.

Hardly a typical Jewish song, “My Yiddishe Mama” was widely recorded by hundreds of artists of various faiths and backgrounds. A commentary on the Jewish immigrant experience, the song came to represent the conflicts and challenges of a generation. 

Join Cantor Tilem as we discuss the Jewish experience through the lens of this popular melody that is still sung today. 

Tuesdays, February 8, 15 and 22 (make-up date March 8) at 7:30 pm on Zoom.

                                     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!
