    • Many centuries ago, Hillel said, “In a place where there are no human beings, strive to be one.” On the page these are simple words, easily understood. In the real world, however, there’s nothing simple about them. Seriously considered, they ask nothing less of us than to confront the most fundamental questions in our lives, including these: How should we live? and What Really Matters? Join us on Yom Kippur afternoon for a free-wheeling discussion of what it means to be Hillel’s “human being” in today’s world.
  • 2:30pm: Healing service in the Sanctuary

Additional Information

  • There are assisted hearing devices available in the Sanctuary
  • We have a limited number of large print High Holy Day prayer books that can be used for services in the Sanctuary
  • HaMakom will be set up with a TV and streaming for those who need a break from the Sanctuary
  • Our Annual Manna food drive continues!
    • Each year at Yom Kippur, Temple Emanuel runs a canned food drive to collect food for those less fortunate in Montgomery County. Despite being an affluent part of the USA, our county has many residents who suffer from food insecurity. We work closely with Manna Food Center, an organization that fights hunger in Montgomery County. Bags will be handed out at Rosh Hashanah services, and members are encouraged (URGED!) to bring bags and bags of non-perishable food items to Temple Emanuel when they come for Yom Kippur morning services.  Our goal is to collect more than in any previous year, and more than other local synagogues (friendly competition!)  Especially important is baby food (not in glass!) due to the shortage of formula this past year.
