Temple Emeth's 75th Anniversary 

Join us as we celebrate the Temple's 75th anniversary this year, starting with an anniversary service on Friday, December 16 at 8:00 pmBe sure to read emails and Temple bulletin in the months ahead for information about other events in connection with our seventy-fifth anniversary year.

Annual Giving Campaign
 
Help us reach our goal of raising $75,000 in our 75th year! 
 
Last month, we resurrected Temple Emeth's  Annual Giving Campaign. To date, through the support of more than 75 members, we have raised over $30,000.  This is great news – yet we still have a way to go to reach our goal of $75,000. This will allow us to pay for our growing capital expenses, which includes making improvements to our aging building, and continue to provide the outstanding activities and programs that set us apart as a community.
 
Please give what you can by returning the pledge card enclosed in the original mailing, clicking here, or calling the Temple office with your donation.  If it is more convenient, a Temple member will telephone you beginning the week of December 5th to ask for your participation. 
 
Thank you again for supporting Temple Emeth as we celebrate our 75th anniversary.

Thanks to Barbara Balkin for putting together a slideshow of our past year. Over the last year, we came together to pray, laugh, eat, study, mourn, enjoy art and music, watch movies, do Tikkun Olam, travel, and discuss. Temple Emeth is 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. As we opened our building and emerged from the pandemic, we had a busy year. Click here to view our 2020-21 Annual Meeting Slideshow.

Our Honor Roll celebrates our 2021–2022 volunteers.  Thank you all!
