“On Rosh Hashanah, it is written. On Yom Kippur, it is sealed.”
May it be your will, Eternal our God, that the year 5783 brings to us, to the whole House of Israel,
and to all the world, life and peace, joy and exaltation, redemption and comfort. Amen.
You can attend Temple Emanuel's 5783 High Holidays
virtually or in-person!
To attend this year's High Holiday Services at Temple Emanuel in-person, you must have a ticket for security purposes.
Members were sent tickets automatically in early September. Non-members and guests of members may request a ticket by calling the Temple office. There is no charge for tickets, but donations are gratefully accepted! Tickets are valid for all the services.
The main services (Erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah Morning, Kol Nidre, and the Yom Kippur Morning, Afternoon, Yizkor, and Neilah services) will be livestreamed. If you are not feeling well, or you should quarantine due to Covid exposure, or you have any health concerns about attending in-person, we invite you to watch from the comfort of home.
Services are livestreamed on the Temple Facebook page. You do not have to have a Facebook account to watch the service. If Facebook asks you to create an account when you click on the link, just click "Not now."
Currently, masks are optional but strongly encouraged for all those attending services inside Temple Emanuel.

High Holy Day Food Drive 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, we are once again encouraging our members and guests 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. 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 food relief and/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.
