Temple Emeth Rabbi Louis J. Sigel scholar-in-residence weekend with Rabbi David Saperstein was held April 12 to 14, when Rabbi Saperstein discussed “Being the Hands of God: Jewish Social Justice at a Time of Crisis and Opportunity.”

The program at the Teaneck shul, established in 1986, was named in honor of Rabbi Louis J. Sigel in 2001. Rabbi Sigel led Temple Emeth from 1960 until 1992 and then was rabbi emeritus there until his death in 2005.
