You must have a ticket to attend services.  All members in good standing will receive one ticket for every household member – but you must request the tickets ahead of time. Tickets will be available for pickup at the Temple Office starting on Monday, September 19 or at will-call on the day of the service. Tickets will not be mailed. If you would like to purchase tickets, please call the office at 619-286-2555 or email bthomas@teesd.org


Memorial Book Contribution

Our Book of Remembrance will once again be distributed to the Congregation on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, when we are most poignantly reminded of the passing of our loved ones. It will include the names of the departed and those who are memorializing them.

The deadline to contribute to the Memorial Book is Friday, September 30th.  Please contact the office at 619-286-2555 for assistance.

High Holy Day Food Drive

Each year, the Social Action Committee coordinates Temple Emanu-El’s collection of non-perishable food and grocery store gift cards.
Bags will be available on Erev Rosh Hashanah and Rosh Hashanah Day and should be returned filled on Yom Kippur.

If you are livestreaming services from home, pick up a bag when you pick up your prayer books, and return the food any time to the Temple office.
If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Pollack at rrbp@aol.com.
