Emanuel Synagogue Brotherhood has expanded participation for World Wide Wrap by making it an Emanuel Synagogue community experience. Our Brotherhood coordinates this activity with our Sisterhood, Minyonaires, Religious School and Bar/Bat Mitzvah Club to make the World Wide Wrap a generational and synagogue wide program. Participants ranged in age from 10 to in their 80’s.
We confirm the WWW date from the FJMC calendar and then alert all of Emanuel Synagogue participant groups and professional staff. The date is also noted on the Emanuel Synagogue calendar. The schedule for the day is developed. The WWW schedule for the day begins with wrap instruction, then a participatory shaharit service, then a hot breakfast. Students from the various religious school grades lead portions of the service. The hot breakfast is prepared by members of the Emanuel Brotherhood, Emanuel Sisterhood and Emanuel Minyonaires. Our Rabbi, Cantor, Ritual Director, Student Rabbi, Brotherhood and Minyonaires help teach individuals how to put on tefillin. The planning process begins in September 2012 to ensure that all arms are on board for this event.

Self Assessment
The WWW provides an opportunity for our entire Emanuel community to experience the mitzvah of putting on tefillin. It engages our synagogue members of all ages and provides our youth with a mitzvah experience outside of the classroom.
Expanding the WWW experience beyond our Brotherhood provides an opportunity for our men to share a mitzvah experience with their children and the entire Emanuel community. This gives our members leadership opportunities.
