Join Our Virtual Community


Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley is committed to creating and fostering the most inclusive and welcoming spaces possible. In response to COVID-19 we have greatly expanded the accessibility and ease of our existing virtual options, as well as added many more opportunities to connect, learn, celebrate, organize, pray, and congregate.

Like many organizations, we strongly rely on income from weekly and monthly fundraising events which have been canceled due to Covid-19.  Please consider supporting CEHV with a donation of any size to sustain our continuing efforts to reach you virtually during this challenging time.

Shabbat & Festival Services

All of our services are simultaneously live-streamed on our website and our Facebook page.

Join us every Friday evening for our special Kabbalat Shabbat services and Saturday morning for Torah study during our morning minyan. 

We use the Mishkan T’filah: A Reform Siddur as our primary prayer book.

Support Our Virtual Jewish Community

Every dollar makes a difference. Thank you for supporting clergy and staff who are working hard to inspire and care for you.

Special New Song for Saturday Morning Minyan

All the World Sings to You

by Anselm Rothschild

All the world sings, the world sings to You! ​2 X

The song of the trees when wind stirs their leaves,

The song of the earth, when rain soothes its thirst,

The song of the sea when waves are set free,

The song of the sky then hummingbirds fly.

Shabat Shalom ​4 X

Mi Shebeirach by Lisa Levine Chorus: Mi she-bei-rach a-vo-tei-nu Av-ra-ham, Yitz-chak v’-Ya’-a-kov Av-ra-ham, Yitz-chak v’-Ya’-a-kov Mi she-bei-rach i-mo-tei-nu  Sa-ra, Riv-ka, Le-ah v’-Ra-cheil May the One who blessed our mothers May the One who blessed our fathers Hear our prayer (4X) and bless us as well. Bless us with the power of Your healing. Bless us with the power of Your hope. May our hearts be filled with understanding and strengthened by the power of Your love. Chorus: Bless us with the vision for tomorrow, Help us to reach out to those in pain. May the warmth of friendship ease our sorrow, Give us courage, give us faith, show us the way. Mi she-bei-rach a-vo-tei-nu Mi she-bei-rach i-mo-tei-nu Hear our prayer (4X) and bless us as well.
Cantorial Soloist Alexandra Schleuderer invites all to join her on Shabbat for Cantor Lisa Levine's beautiful healing prayer.
