Support Emanuel Congregation

Become a New Emanuel Member

Membership dollars ensure that Emanuel is not only able to provide a meaningful High Holy Day season, but also continue to provide quality programming throughout the year. For those who want to join our community, all are welcome! Please visit our Membership page HERE. You may also reach out to us by phone, 773-561-5173, or email, info@emanuelcong.org and we will be happy to help you with the process.

Make a Donation to the Fund For Emanuel

As membership dues do not cover the full cost of serving our community, we look to our members, neighbors, friends and family to support the congregation with a donation to our Fund for Emanuel. The Fund for Emanuel helps support our growing youth group and teen programming, study groups, social justice initiatives, musical programming, holiday celebrations, building maintenance, and so much more. In short, it helps open our doors to all who seek richer, more meaningful lives.

 

Emanuel Congregation is your neighborhood congregation, wherever you live. Whether you are joining us this High Holy Day season for the first time or connect with us weekly, we are grateful you are here. Your contributions are greatly appreciated!

Book of Remembrance

Book of Remembrance 2015-2020.jpg

It is a sacred tradition of our faith to honor in prayers and acts of charity the memory of loved ones, particularly when we gather for our High Holy Day Services. There will be Yizkor on Yom Kippur and we will remember our family and friends in our Book of Remembrance.

 

Members can review their entry from last year, make adjustments and submit everything for the Book of Remembrance using this link. Please log into shulcloud first, then click the link so it will provide you with last years information. If you need assistance logging in, please contact the office at 773-561-5173 or info@emanuelcong.org.

Non-Members Option to Add Names:

If you would like to submit names for the Book of Remembrance, use this link. Please note, the recommendation donation allows us to provide this service to the community.  If you have any questions, please contact Devorah Heyman at voheyman@hotmail.com.

This year's Book of Remembrance will be available for congregants to pick-up on Yom Kippur. We are also working on a way to mail the book to those who will not be attending services in person. Thank you.

Tikkun Olam - Repair the World

Tikkun-Olam-Pic.jpg

Emanuel Congregation is working with the following organizations before and during the High Holy Days in an effort to help repair our world:

  • Care for Real - To help our neighbors in need this winter, we will be collecting items needed by Care for Real to help serve their clients this winter. More information to come.

  • Shalva - When you donate a used cell phone or iPad, Shalva sends them to a recycling company and then receives money to help fund their much needed services to women healing from abuse. If you have a used cell phone or iPad that you would like to donate to Shalva, please email info@emanuelcong.org to arrange a time drop it off at Emanuel. For more information about Shalva visit shalvaonline.org.

  • The Ark - Annual Food Drive. The Ark is collecting kosher, non-perishable foods to distribute to its clients for the High Holy Days and beyond. More information about The Ark's Annual High Holy Day Food Drive coming soon.

  • Mazon - A Jewish Response to Hunger. Click HERE to learn more about this organization.
