On October 7th, 2023, the Jewish people sustained the most deadly attack since the Shoah. Over 1,300 people were brutally murdered by Hamas terrorists and 241 people were taken hostage. In the following weeks, Jews from around the world have pulled together to support our Israeli family and rebuild while the crisis continues.
Temple Emunah would like to thank everyone who donated for their generosity during this time of crisis and specifically thank Adam Samansky, Michael Roskind, and Janet Goldberg for their work in coordinating this drive.

Rabbi Lerner and Me’ir Sherer, our Director of Congregational Learning, and over 30 Temple Emunah congregants are joining with other delegations from the Conservative/Masorti Movement, the Reform Movement, the Reconstructionist Movement, and Jewish Federations from across the United States in a powerful show of solidarity, marching on Washington. We will pray in support of Israel, for the release of our hostages, and to show Jewish pride in the face of antisemitism.
Our congregant, Ken Bruss, has graciously opened his home to an Israeli family who came to safety in Boston.
