Emanu-El

This morning I drove to Temple Emanu-El to turn in my completed application to join the synagogue. I asked that my Hebrew name be used on my name badge.

My Hebrew name is Gershon Ben Daniel which in Hebrew translates to:
Gershon the son of Daniel

I asked the security guard to take a pic of me standing in front of the temple entrance. The sign above the entrance reads "Emanu-El" in Hebrew.
This word is actually a grammatical composite – “Eem”, meaning “with” ; “anu”, meaning “us” – and “El” – the ancient word for “God” in Hebrew.

Emanu-El "God is with us"

  2. Congrats on the next step in your journey! The Hebrew spelling and breakdown in meaning of Emanu-El has shed some light for me concerning the verses in Isaiah mentioning "Immanuel". Very neat :-)

  7. Emmanuel is really a beautiful name, in fact it's a name that I gave to my youngest son. Something to remind us that God is always with us no matter what. If it's okay with you I would like to re-post this via best resume writing service, so my co-employee can read it.
