Torah Study

Every Monday at noon we gather for a fun and thought-provoking study of Jewish texts. In addition to reading the Biblical texts, we also study some of the commentators which often leads to a very interesting understanding. Bring your lunch to the Temple Library and join us for an hour of study and friendship!

Hebrew Lessons

Hebrew is the language of our people and learning Hebrew as an adult can be fun and rewarding. Rabbi Cohen holds small classes and works individually with adults to help them reach their Hebrew goals. Call the Temple office today and get started!

Tuesdays at the Temple

Tuesdays at the Temple is our weekly adult education class. The topics vary and there is always a high caliber of educational excellence. We often have guest lecturers from the surrounding colleges. The Rabbi teaches regularly as do members of the congregation who have an expertise in a particular area. 


Bea Lapes Memorial Library

We are the People of the Book! Our Library is truly a treasure. With row upon row of books, there is something for everyone! Our reference section includes most Jewish classics and will soon be housed across the hall in the “small board room”. We have a wonderful fiction collection as well as many history, theology, holiday, cookbooks, commentaries etc. All non-reference books may be checked out.

Elyse Crane is the Temple Emanuel Librarian. If you have questions or suggestions, please let her know.

Tina Loebl Children's Library

The Tina Loebl Children’s Library was established in 2006 in honor of Mrs.Tina Loebl, a wise and dedicated congregant who loved the children of Temple Emanuel. In her memory, her sons contributed a generous donation earmarked to create something meaningful in honor of their dynamic mother. The Library will be open at least 5 times a month for parents to check out books. Contact Chen Greenberg or Elyse Crane for times and dates. Our new computer will provide a variety of Jewish programs to strengthen students’ skills in an exciting and interactive activity. It will help not only the pre-school, but also Hebrew students as well. 


Mussar is the study and practice of Jewish spiritual living. Each of us have hundreds of character traits (middot) such as humility, patience, tolerance, equanimity, generosity etc. In order to be the best people that we can be and therefore capable of a clearer, stronger relationship with others and God, we must continually work towards a balance of these traits. A new Mussar group will form in November and meet every other Sunday morning from 10:00-11:30 am. Our two continuing Mussar groups will meet on the third and fourth Tuesday nights of each month. Call the Temple Emanuel office and make an appointment with Rabbi Cohen if you are ready for this important journey in your life!
