Rabbi Mychal will be leading us in a discussion of interfaith relationships throughout Jewish history and the present challenges and opportunities they pose. This discussion will provide a foundation for the second part of the series in which we will explore the many realities of interfaith relationships, including challenges we have faced and our varied approaches to our own interfaith experiences.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Since 1907, Congregation Temple Emanu-El has been a Conservative synagogue serving the spiritual and
social needs of Staten Islanders.
A welcoming, inclusive and family-friendly
congregation, we worship together on Friday nights at
8:00 pm and Shabbat mornings beginning at 9:00 in our historic 1907 sanctuary. Our popular junior
congregation service begins Shabbat morning at 10:30
in the adjoining educational building.
We also co-sponsor a morning minyan, open to men and women, held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:20 am in our sanctuary, and on Mondays and Thursdays at 7:20 am, and on Sundays at 9:00 am, at our neighbor, Congregation B’nai Jeshurun.
Temple activities include active Sisterhood and Men’s
Clubs, Hebrew School and extensive adult education,
including adult Bat Mitzvah classes. Members are also
encouraged to serve on our various temple committees.
Temple Emanu-El is also active in the wider Staten Island community.We sponsor a Boy Scout troop, host the Jewish War Veterans, host events for the Staten Island Jewish Historical Society and are the founding organization of Staten Island Community Days. The Staten Island Council of Jewish Organizations (COJO) food pantry operates from our building.
