This is a very special congregation. Congregants of all backgrounds feel connected and inspired by our services, our religious school, and our myriad programs. Our clergy and staff dedicate themselves to creating a robust suite of engaging programs, stimulating classes, and uplifting prayer experiences so that all congregants can express their Jewish identity in the most personally meaningful ways. Rather than seeking conformity, we build community by honoring the uniqueness of each individual. It is a pleasure to welcome you to Emanu-El. Take some time to explore our site and then, please, give us a call – we would love to speak with you!
