TEMPLE EMANU-EL






"God Be With Us"

TEMPLE EMANU-EL – the largest Jewish congregation in the New York City -- dates back to 1845.  It first home was on the Lower East Side (at Grand & Clinton Streets), then on Fifth Avenue & 43rd Street in 1868 and finally in 1927 at its current location at the corner of Fifth Avenue & 65th Street – across from Central Park (notice the reflection of the park’s trees in the front windows).  The temple was founded by Jews who came to America from Germany and Austria.
