Social Action

Tikkum Olam - repairing the world - is a cornerstone of Temple Emanu-El. From volunteer opportunities, to fundraisers, walks, and a local garden, the congregation strives to do its part for those in need. "You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it" - Pirkei Avot 2:21


Temple Emanu-El looks forward to meeting you! The community prides itself on inclusivity, and helping members to find their niche in a home away from home.


Worship at Temple Emanu-El is uplifting, intimate, and meaningful. Services use a mixture of Hebrew and English, classical and modern music, to balance the riches of tradition with modern innovation.
