How often do you conduct Jewish worship?
We have services every Friday Night Shabbat and Saturday Morning Torah Study. We also observe all the major (and many minor) Jewish holidays along with Yizkor Services.
How many Rabbis does Temple Emanuel have?
We have one Rabbi. Rabbi Linda Bertenthal will serve as our Interim Rabbi for Temple Emanuel for this coming year.
What do I get for my membership commitment?
Lots and lots. On top of the regular benefits of membership like High Holy Day tickets, access to summer camps, retreats, Religious and Hebrew School, congregational dinners and more, our Rabbi, staff, and Temple members will be there to support you through life’s challenges and joys. You will also be supporting our synagogue, Reform Judaism in the Quad Cities and the great programs we offer.
