Welcome to Temple Emanu-El

Temple Emanu-El is a vibrant, progressive community committed to Jewish renewal at home, in the synagogue and in the wider Jewish universe. We seek to nurture the Jewish life of all of our congregants, young and old, in times of distress and in moments of joy. We are steadfast in our commitment to tikkun olam, or social justice, in the greater world around us and in Israel, and we seek to strengthen our ties of love and loyalty with Israel in all arenas. We are a warm and intimate community, one which deeply values all of its diverse members.


In addition to the 2016 Monday Fall Lecture Series , there will be six Thursday Books and Biscotti reviews.
