Temple Emanuel Prayer Shawls

Greensboro's Jewish community has been an influential part of our city since the 1890s. As part of its centennial celebration, Temple Emanuel hosted a Jewish Festival, featuring Jewish food, music, and tours of their new building.

Here are the prayer shawls worn by members of the congregation when they read from the Torah.
