At Temple Emanu-El, we welcome all who seek a Jewish religious connection and choose to embrace and participate in Jewish culture. We empower members of all ages to create meaningful lives through study and education in Jewish subjects and progressive Jewish thought. We worship together and celebrate the joy of Shabbat, Jewish festivals, and personal and family life-cycle events. We also support and comfort our members in times of need. We affirm our bond with Jews around the world and especially with our historic homeland, the State of Israel. We inspire our members and the larger community toward social justice and holiness.
