Our relationship with Israel is one of the defining characteristics of Temple Emanu-El. Three quarters of our members have visited Israel at least once in their lifetime. More than 90% of members consider Israel important to them personally. Almost everyone believes Israel is important to Jewish identity.

We invite guest speakers from Israel on an regular basis, Israel history and culture is a favourite topic of our Adult Education programs, and we have partnered with Israel Reform communities. We have established an Israel Committee to help provide guidance on how to continue to strengthen our relationship with the Jewish homeland.

Please contact the Temple Office if you are interested in participating in this important aspect of our community life.
