Temple Emanu-El follows a proud tradition of Reform Judaism with a focus on Torah and worship, education, social action, Jewish culture, Israel and leadership. We work to build meaningful connections through Jewish values, celebrating each person’s unique journey. We strive to be a compassionate and spiritual community dedicated to inclusion.

High Holy Days 5781

Our High Holy Days will look different than past ones, yet we are committed to making them a meaningful and spiritual experience for our entire community. We are excited about the many new services and programs we are offering this year as well as our Temple Emanu-El hallmark services.

Installation Service of Rabbi Ethan Prosnit

On Friday, September 11 we celebrated the installation of Rabbi Ethan Prosnit as our Senior Rabbi during Shabbat Services.

Join us as we prepare for the High Holy Days

During this upcoming month of Elul, on the secular calendar from August 21 through September 18, Temple Emanu-El will be taking the opportunity that Elul affords us to think about the year to come. Every day, we will share some brief thoughts for the day, a chance to engage with others on some communal questions. It is our hope that this will be a moment of much-needed spiritual engagement in a difficult year.
