Congregants and Friends of Temple Emanuel,
With cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) increasing across the globe, many synagogues and their communities are feeling anxious or even fearful. Our top priority at Temple Emanuel is to ensure the safety and well-being of our congregants, their families, friends, and greater Lakeland community.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Temple Executive Committee has decided to suspend all services, Religious School, and group activities until further notice. This will be effective Friday, March 13, 2020.
The Temple Board will continue to monitor the information provided by our Federal, State and local authorities and make any other needed changes.
In order to minimize the disruption, the board is researching the usage of an online meeting service to stream services.
As we have updates next week, we will distribute them via email and post them on the Temple website templeemanuellakeland.com and Facebook page facebook.com/TempleEmanuelLakeland.
