United States > New York: Temple Emanu-El uniface emblem, ND (circa. 1960's-1970's); two-toned gilded nickel(?); not maker-marked; size: 38.5mm; weight: 20.05g.
Depicts blue facade of the Temple on white background with legend in silver letters around edge on blue background "Congregation Emanu-El of the City of New York". Appears to be a round emblem soldiered to a metal base and may have been attached to an object in the past.
Possibly made in 1965 for the congregation's 120th anniversary (the only one highlighted by the Temple's history timeline), for which a professionally commissioned dramatic performance recalling the congregation's foundation was made.
Temple Emanu-El was the first Reform Jewish congregation of New York City and one of the most prominent Synagogues in the world. The name, "Immanu El" in Hebrew means "G-d is with us".
