Membership at Temple Emanu-El

Find Your Place at Temple Emanu-El

Temple Emanu-El is a bold Reform congregation where warmth and majesty meet. We offer you a home for the spirit. Whether weekly or just once a year, you can gather with others in our soaring sanctuary, a space that inspires awe and humility and nourishes the soul. Whether you are with us in person or with us in spirit online, our rabbis, cantors and educators engage us with insightful sermons that are relevant and thought-provoking, and our cantors, organist and professional choir uplift us with music.

We know that an important function of any synagogue is fostering community — connecting members to one another and encouraging the formation of lasting friendships. We welcome you to get involved with one of our many community groups for all ages and interests.

We embrace our diverse membership and believe that our unique identities, perspectives and experiences enhance our community. We strive to create an environment where everybody feels seen, heard, and valued. We believe that we are enriched by the unique religious backgrounds and traditions of our members and all who worship with us–interfaith families, Jews by choice, religious seekers and the Jewishly curious–whether you come twice a year or every week, we welcome you just as you are and invite you to find your place at Temple Emanu-El.

At Temple Emanu-El, we encourage our community — of every age, race, gender and background — to gather in an atmosphere both warm and awe-inspiring. As we share our moments of joy as well as our times of sadness, immerse ourselves in the richness and beauty of our tradition, and act upon our tradition’s values in the world around us.” — Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson
