Congregation Emanu El welcomes you to our family!

Since its founding in 1944, Emanu El has stood for a love of Jewish culture and life expressed in prayer and programming; has supported Israel in all its nuance and complexity; has been committed to Jewish learning and social justice, and has been a beacon of freedom of expression from both pulpit and pew.

We celebrate the diverse communities represented by our members and provide a welcoming spiritual home for them.

And we celebrate the generosity of the Jewish spirit by supporting our members, our local community and our national Jewish community.

Whether you are meeting us for the first time or have been part of our family for generations, we welcome you with arms ever open to the vibrant and meaningful community that is Congregation Emanu El.
