Religious School and B’nai Mitzvah Ceremonies

A bar or bat mitzvah is an important milestone for Jewish children as they reach their thirteenth birthday. Temple Emanuel’s comprehensive program for religious school students includes prayer classes, Haftarah classes and special parent/child meetings with the Rabbi, all in preparation for a meaningful and unforgettable bar or bat mitzvah.

Weddings

Weddings are joyous celebrations, the merging of two people and beginning of a new phase of life. Each wedding ceremony is unique, an expression of the tastes, energies, and values of the couple getting married. At the same time, each wedding partakes of Jewish culture, calling on the timeless symbols and words that turn two loving individuals into a family.

Funerals, Memorial Services, and Unveilings

Funerals and memorials are sacred and powerful acts of love. They provide survivors the opportunity to say goodbye, and begin the grieving process. They pay tribute to a loved one. They acknowledge the end of a life with beauty, dignity, and respect, and in so doing they honor life itself.  

About a year following a death, loved ones gather at the grave to dedicate a memorial at a simple ceremony called an “unveiling.”  It provides the family and close friends an opportunity to reconnect with each other. They acknowledge the passage of time and the new shape their lives have taken. 

As a benefit of membership, when a member dies (or when the loved one of a member dies), we will provide an email notification to our membership upon request.  Members are welcome to contact our Office at (480) 838-1414 to request that an email be sent to our spiritual community.
