Who Are We?

 

Temple Emanu-El is a vibrant, egalitarian community, affiliated with the Reform movement. We are a proudly diverse congregation, recognizing how our differences make us strong. We have never grown so large that our members lose their sense of belonging.

 

Temple Emanu-El’s Shema Statement:
 

Creating Jewish Life with Depth and Meaning

We seek to bring depth and meaning to Jewish life in the 21st Century through our passionate engagement with Jewish traditions and our understanding of the larger Jewish story.

At Temple Emanu-El, we achieve this through:

  • nourishing personal and congregational spiritual growth through the joy of study, music, prayer and Torah
  • strengthening our relationships with each other and with Jews throughout the world
  • nurturing our strong connection to Israel
  • welcoming participation from all who seek a meaningful connection to a Jewish life
  • approaching challenges with creativity, compassion, morality and humanity
  • engaging with the world around us with chesed (loving kindness) and tzedek (justice)
  • sustaining Jewish life for the next generation and linking our lives across the generations
  • fostering serenity through our inclusive and welcoming community and our beautiful, tranquil surroundings.
