“On Rosh Hashanah it is written. On Yom Kippur it is sealed.”
May it be your will, Eternal our God, that the year 5781 brings to us, to the whole House of Israel,
and to all the world, life and peace, joy and exaltation, redemption and comfort. Amen.
This year, Temple Emanuel is not holding in-person services for the High Holidays to avoid spreading Covid19.
Instead, you will be able to enjoy our services from the comfort of your own home! Watch Rabbi Fred Guttman, Rabbi Andy Koren, Cantorial Soloist Mitchel Sommers, our professional and volunteer choirs, the Shofar Chorale, and more leading five, very special, pre-recorded High Holiday services on Temple Emanuel's YouTube Channel and Facebook page, along with other special in-person and interactive programs on Zoom.
We highly recommend viewing the main high holiday services on YouTube as we believe the sound and picture quality are better. Services will be up on YouTube approximately 30 minutes prior to the times listed below.

High Holy Day Appeal
For Jews around the world, the High Holy Days not only mark a time for prayer and spiritual reflection but also for action to improve the world. This year, since we are not having in-person services, we are encouraging our members to bring bags filled with non-perishable food to the Temple, starting on Tashlich and continuing through Yom Kippur. The food will be delivered to the Jewish Family Services Food Pantry. Boxes for you to leave your grocery bags will be stationed outside of the Administrative and Main entrances that week for your convenience to drop them off. Grocery bags should contain only non-perishable foods.
We also encourage everyone to send in a check during the High Holy Days, made payable to Temple Emanuel but designated on the memo line for either food relief or the immigration fund. Funds raised for food relief will be distributed to the Greensboro Urban Ministry. Funds raised for the Temple Immigration Fund help support Faith Action.
