This summer, Temple Emanu-El is going out into the community with its Emanu-El on the Rhode series. A full calendar of events is planned all over Rhode Island, with something for everyone.
Events include a beach day in Narragansett, hikes in Smithfield and North Kingstown, a concert featuring hits from the 1980s, a Jewish walking tour in Newport and a Providence Ghost Tour. There will also be stroller walks and rabbi talks.
Emanu-El on the Rhode is one way that Temple Emanu-El, of Providence, is welcoming its new head rabbi, Michael Fel, to Rhode Island. The series will give him many opportunities to explore the state and meet members of the Jewish community.
“It was important for us to provide an opportunity for people across Rhode Island to socialize and get to know each other, as well as Rabbi Fel, Rabbi Rachel Zerin, Cantor Brian Mayer and the rest of our staff,” said Sharon Sock, Emanu-El’s advancement and membership coordinator.
Most events are free, while a few have a fee of no more than $20. All Emanu-El on the Rhode events can be found in Jewish Rhode Island’s community calendar, both in print and online (www.jewishrhody.com), as well as at Temple Emanu-El’s summer webpage, www.teprov.org/summer.
