We look forward to seeing you and your members on Sunday April 26th for the Annual Gathering of Remembrance at Temple Emanu-El, located at Fifth Ave and 65th St.

Over 2,000 tickets have been sent out, and we expect a large turn-out. The ceremony will begin at 3pm, with doors opening at 2:15pm.

Please be aware that the Greek Independence Day Parade will be taking place on Fifth Avenue on the same afternoon (roughly 1-5PM). It will run 18 blocks, from 61st to 79th Sts. Below are instructions and recommendations on getting to the Temple. I understand that this is late notice; we only found out ourselves last Friday and spent this morning getting details on the scope of the Parade and its impact on our event. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. We encourage you to share this information with your members.

If you plan to arrive by car:

Note that there will be no through traffic on 5th Avenue between 61st and 79th Streets, or on 65th and 66th Sts. (the streets south and north of the Temple).

If your members are arriving by car, please advise them to avoid 5th Avenue and side streets between 61st and 79th. For people arriving from the west side, the 79th St Transverse will be open.

If they are dropping off friends or family, they should drop off at the corner of Madison Avenue and 65th or 66th Streets. We will have volunteers on hand at these corners to meet guests and help direct them to the Temple entrances.

If you plan to arrive by subway:

Exit the subway and walk to Madison Avenue (avoiding 5th Ave), then turn on 65th or 66th Sts. to access the Temple (entrances at 5th Ave., 65th St. and 66th Sts., depending on the instructions printed on each guest
