COVID-19 Resource Page

This is an unnerving and stressful time for all of us. Amid much uncertainty, we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and have been meeting frequently to discuss options and plans for our Adath community. There is consensus around one fact regarding COVID-19: we are in an evolving situation.


Decisions regarding the format, cancellation or postponement of programs and events will be made in a thoughtful manner, keeping the health and safety of everyone in our community in mind.

When to Stay Home

As we navigate the information that is out there and try to determine the best way forward for our community, we are reminded of two consistent messages:


1. If you don’t feel well, please stay home.

2. If you are a category that is considered high risk, please stay home.

Also, please remain at home if:
- You have been in direct contact with someone who has subsequently been diagnosed or is being tested.

- You have traveled to a high risk  country (currently China, South Korea, Iran, and Italy)



Welcome to Adath Emanu-El, a liberal but traditional Jewish community in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. From its very inception over 50 years ago, our synagogue has emphasized being an extended family, a congregational family. Even in the choice of name we are simply Adath Emanu-El - the community of Emanu-El. We are a congregation that supports a wide range of programs and activities for members of all ages. Our community is based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, a Jew by birth or by choice.
