Help Us Send "Shaloha From Hawaii!"

The 92nd Y has invited Temple Emanu-El to be one of ten Jewish communities around the world to send a global Rosh Hashanah greeting.

Using our Facebook page on Thursday, September 10, Temple Emanu-El along with communities in Australia, Africa, Europe, Los Angeles New York will send the following blessing:

May we move the world with our commitment and our voice. May those you love live in health and may there be well-being within your communities and peace in your cities. #NewYearPrayer

We ask each member of Temple Emanu-El and the greater Oahu Jewish communities to help us share our Shaloha in either:

A video clip reflecting the words of the above New Year's blessing combined with Shaloha or simply showing what Shaloha looks like. Here are the guidelines:

          *The clip can be between 10-60 seconds long
          *It can have sound or no sound (depending on the sound quality we may or may not add music
            underneath the clip
          *You can use a video camera, go pro or smart phone (please hold your smart phone horizontally
            while filming)

Or a photo reflecting the words of the global New Year's blessing above combined with Shaloha, or simply showing what Shaloha looks like. We will use the photos to create photo galleries with added music.

Please send your video clip or photo by the evening of Monday, September 7, 2015 to or call 595-7521 for more  information.

Unlikely Liberators Exhibit Running August 21-September 6

Unlikely Liberators 

The remarkable story of the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion

and the liberation of the Dachau Death March 



A photo exhibit curated by military historian, Eric Saul, documents the encounters between

Nazi concentration camp prisoners and Nisei soldiers of the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion.

The 522nd was part of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a segregated unit made up

primarily of Japanese Americans who fought valiantly for the U.S. in World War II.  

In the war's closing days, the 522nd came across sub-camps of the Dachau complex.

                  GIs from the 522nd - some of whom had volunteered from U.S. "internment camps" where
                  their families were imprisoned - came face to face with and assisted the sub-camp survivors.


Exhibit Schedule:


August 20 - September 6, 2015:     Temple Emanu-El


M-F: 9am-5pm            Sat.-Sun: 10am-5pm
