The Young Members’ Circle is committed to cultivating a vibrant and inclusive community for young professionals at Temple Emanu-El. We come together to strengthen our bonds with one another, empower each other to deepen our connection to Judaism and the Jewish community and make a meaningful impact on the world around us.

Our goal is to create a sense of belonging and shared experience within our diverse community. We are dedicated to supporting personal growth and development among our young members. We provide opportunities for members to connect with one another, building relationships that extend beyond the walls of our temple. Through a variety of events and initiatives, we facilitate authentic connections and encourage dialogue, creating a space where everyone feels valued. We invite you to join us in creating a dynamic and nurturing space where everyone can find community, understanding and a sense of belonging.

To learn more about membership please contact clergy support at to get in touch with Cantor Sara Anderson.

Donate Today to the Young Members Giving Circle

We hope you will consider donating to the Young Members Giving Circle this year. No amount is too little or too much, and it will be combined with a $10,000 pool given to us from the Emanu-El Philanthropic Fund.

More information will be forthcoming as we gather our team to move this project forward, and we hope that our collective contribution will continue Temple Emanu-El’s legacy of tikkun olam.

Please email for the link to donate.
