Dear Members and Friends,

None of us can predict what tomorrow will bring, however, we have made proactive decisions based upon guidance from the CDC and the Florida and Palm Beach County Departments of Health that will help us ensure the well-being of our community, including our congregants and staff. We are taking this day-by-day, so we ask for your patience and understanding.

Therefore, in a proactive move, we are immediately suspending all food service in the Synagogue which includes, but is not limited to – minyan breakfast, Friday evening Oneg & Shabbat Kiddush. The exception to this will be catered plated meals.

As an additional precautionary measure, in order to limit the spreading of germs, Temple Torat Emet will not be providing Kippot and Tallitot until further notice. Please provide your own.

Kabalat Shabbat WILL be held this evening at 7:30 pm in the sanctuary.
Minyans will continue Sunday through Friday until further notice.

Please note: We’ve been made aware of yet another round of email spoofs. While they may appear to come from someone at Temple Torat Emet (in this case Rabbi David Barnett), if you look closely at the sender’s email address, you can see that the emails are being sent from fake gmail accounts. We advise you to not click on any links or forward any email that looks suspicious. If you have any question if an email you’ve received is real, feel free to call the Temple office at 561.369.1112.
