Live From Seattle: It's Temple!
You are now able to view services streamed live from Seattle. Please note that if you do not wish to appear on camera during the streaming, you can sit in the last few rows of the chapel. You can watch services live or view them from the archives later. Just click here.
Members have been asking Temple to alert them when fellow congregant families experience the death of loved ones. In response, Temple is implementing a new alert program via email. In the event of a death, members will receive an email with the name of the affected congregants, plus any funeral, memorial, shiva or donation information provided. Of course members can opt out of having notifications sent on their behalf in the event of a death, as well as opt out of receiving any death notification emails.
