High Holidays 2021

Dear Members and Friends,

With Rabbi and Cantor Oksana Chapman at our helm, beginning her 15th year with us, we welcome you to Temple Emmanuel, as we turn toward the New Year 5782. Erev Rosh Hashanah begins early, on Monday, September 6th. Please join us at High Holiday services in our breathtaking sanctuary and newly restored Social Hall. We will continue offering all of you the ability to “attend” our inspiring services in person, or virtually.

As you all know, this year has been unusual in many respects, but many people have found the time to participate in enhancing Temple Emmanuel on so many levels. New committees have been formed to organize our activities and assist us in becoming a vital part of the Chelsea community. This year we have taken advantage of every opportunity to grow and participate in Tikkun Olam. Plese join us in the upcoming year at the Temple.  Our attitude that nothing is ever “off the table”, makes Temple Emmanuel truly unique. Fresh NEW ideas are always welcomed and are blended with history and heritage!  The Temple always remains on the edge of fresh thinking, since its inception, at this location, back in 1939.

Our Visionary Committee, Officers and Board will be working arduously to set up options for everyone for the High Holidays. We are hoping to see those of you who are able to attend services in person, but it remains your option. Either way, be assured you will be well cared for by your responsible Temple which will follow all suggested protocols. The specific High Holiday Schedule and details can be found on our Events calendar and Home page on this website. We have rehired our magnificent cellist, Nathaniel Lathrop, and also our impressive videographers. One way or another…. we will be seeing you!

Now is the time for Temple Friends to become Official Members. You may take advantage of our monthly payment options.  Any financial help will be greatly appreciated and also help defray additional expenses.
