Temple Emanu-El

One East 65th Street, New York, NY 10065

The Emanu-El synagogue attracts visitors from all over the world due to its historical value and amazing architecture.

About 250,000 Jews from Germany and Austria immigrated to the U.S from 1835 till 1855, and there appeared more and more religious services for the new immigrants. The Congregation Emanu-EI was formed in 1845, and later expanded into the synagogue, having merged with Temple Beth-El and became the basis of today’s Temple Emanu-El. The Temple on Fifth Avenue and 65th street has had its doors open since 1927. Today it continues to hold services, and there is also a museum that presents the history of the place.

Stunning mosaics, arches and stained-glass windows make Temple Emanu-El a must visit place. The website for the synagogue is http://www.emanuelnyc.org/.
