High Holiday Parking




In order for our children to play safely outdoors over the High Holidays, the synagogue parking lot will be closed. Please make alternate arrangements for parking over the holidays.


Make sure you read street signs carefully in order to avoid your car being ticketed or towed.

Childcare & Youth Programming




Children are an integral part of the Torat Emet family!

You will find that the sound of children's laughter and voices are normal during our services.  Having said this, it is important that our children, and everyone attending the services, are given a safe environment in which to share their holiday experience.  


All children's Programs will begin at 10AM and end at the last shofar blowing on Rosh Hashanah and at 2PM on Yom Kippur. 

  • Toddlers through Kindergarten:  Supervised play and childcare will take place in the occasion room.  Kindercongregation, led by Rachel Metz, will be held in the lower level of the synagogue.  

  • Grades 1-2:  will have tefillah, supervised play, and a parent-lead session in Saul & Sonia's Place in the lower level.  Weather permitting, the children will play outside after lunch.

  • Grades 3-6:  will have tefillah, supervised play, and a parent-lead session in the lower level Youth Lounge.  Weather permitting, the children will play outside after lunch.

  • Extensive Snack will be provided for all children on both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur;  if your child has special dietary needs, please contact the shul ahead of time so that we can make arrangements for your child to have food he or she can enjoy.

  • We ask that you make yourself available in case your child needs you during services.  Remember, though childcare and children's services are available, children are ultimately the responsibility of their parents.

  • Childcare leaders will have a zero tolerance policy for unruly, disrespectful and overly disruptive children, and will not be responsible for attending to them.   Children who are unable to handle the childcare environment will be brought to their parents for supervision for the rest of the service.  Remember, care of your child is your responsibility.  Our goal is to make the service and youth programs meaningful, safe and welcoming for EVERYONE.

  • Strollers are not permitted in the main sanctuary. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE.  We ask that you respect the ushers when they request that you not bring a stroller into the sanctuary. 

  • Stroller parking will be made available; simply check with an usher if you cannot determine a proper place to store your stroller.

  • Parent and teen volunteers are still needed to run some of the services and childcare, and to help with snacks and lunches.  Please contact the synagogue office if you or your teen can help.

  • Our TEENS are an integral part of our High Holiday programs.  They are responsible and caring, and are always eager to step in whenever and wherever we need them.  We have many youth leaders set up to help run the groups for our younger children.  If you know that your child is interested in helping out, please have him or her contact Rabbi Ari Neuman at

Safety & Security




For the safety of all of us, off duty security officers will be posted at the synagogue during the holiday services.  If you require assistance or suspect something suspicious, please communicate it to them or to an usher.  As the saying goes:




  • Fred Needham is Torat Emet's usher chair and Al Dembe is the safety committee chair.  If you are able to volunteer for an hour shift as an usher, please contact Alan or Fred or the office.  This is an important job for every member of the congregation.  Even if you don't come to shul regularly, please help contribute in this VERY important way! 
  • Ushers will be posted in the synagogue, and security officers outside, at all times; this is to provide assistance to those in need, as well as keep an eye out for suspicious activity.
  • Our children love talking to the officers on the holidays, and we encourage all the congregants to thank them for being there to protect us.  However, they are posted at the synagogue to perform a VERY important safety function.  We ask that you and/or your children not distract them from that function, so that they are able to perform their duties to the fullest.
  • Please respect any requests the ushers make of you or your children.  They have a difficult job on the holidays, and are at all times trying to ensure the atmosphere is appropriate for the occasion.

Welcome Back Cantor Dovid Weinberg



cantor weinberg

     Congregation Torat Emet is excited to announce that Chazan Dovid Weinberg will once again be leading the congregation in High Holiday services. Chazan Weinberg certainly lives up to his reputation for the ability to combine popular melodies and traditional chazanut. 

     Born in Jerusalem, Chazan Weinberg studied nusach with his father, Rabbi Noftoli Weinberg, and with the world-renown chazan Moshe Stern.   He is the permanent chazan at Congregation Ohel Yitzhak in Jerusalem and a guest chazzan at the Great Synagogue in Yerushalim, the Yeshurun Synagogue and other congregations throughout Israel.

      Chazan Weinberg is often called to synagogues and programs in Europe and in other cities in the U.S.  Prior to his work at Torat Emet, he led the High Holiday Services at Congregation Shaarei Tfilah in L.A.  He lives in Jerusalem with his wife Bracha and their children.  When not busy with Chazanut he works in advertising.

Lulav & Etrog



lulav and etrog

It's that time of year again!  


In order that you may fulfill the mitzvah of Lulav and Etrog as it is written in the Torah, "and you shall take on the first day, the fruit of the tree and branches of palm trees and a bough of the tree Avot and willows of the brook and you shall rejoice before the Lord your G-d seven days,"  we recommend you order your set through the Breslov Center, 231-8671. 


Women are encouraged to purchase their own lulav & etrog set as we will once again hold a Women's Hoshanot service on Yom Tov.  


In addition, we will have a Torah reading for women on Simchat Torah morning.
