  • The Temple Office is open from 9:30 AM until 12:30 PM Monday - Friday.
    Sponsoring an Oneg Shabbt on Friday night or Kiddush on Saturday morning is a wonderful way to commemorate a birthday, a Yahrtzeit or other special event with your fellow congregants, friends and family, or you can sponsor for no occasion at all.

    To sponsor an Oneg Shabbat or a Kiddush, E-mail the Temple office at temple@templeemanuelsi.org. An E-Mail will be sent back stating if the Oneg or Kiddush has been added to the calendar or if there is already a sponsor for that date. If you do not have E-mail, please call the Temple office and speak to the Office Manager; a post card confirmation will be sent instead of an email. Verbal requests will not be put on the calendar.
  • The Temple is on Facebook - The group is called "Congregation Temple Emanu-El of Staten Island" and has over 200 people in it. Current Temple members, Hebrew school students, former members and Hebrew school alumni are a part of this group. Weekly announcements posted include upcoming events at Temple Emanu-El and Staten Island Jewish Community news. It’s also a great way to keep in touch with friends from the Temple. If you or someone from your family is on Facebook, come, join the group and “Like Us”!
