Statement of Inclusion

Temple Emanu-El is a Reform Jewish synagogue that is committed to providing a warm and welcoming environment to nurture the diverse spiritual, religious, educational and social needs of our members.

We welcome Jews of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities to be a part of our community. Interfaith families can find ways to embrace a Jewish lifestyle. We encourage non-Jewish family members to be involved and to participate fully in Temple life. Jews-by-choice, people with special needs, people from the community who feel disconnected or distant from Judaism, all are welcome when they come through our doors.

Our community is characterized by its dedication to inclusion. Our Rabbi, lay-leaders, and members join together to bring meaning to Torah and Jewish observance. We are committed to creative prayer, study, mitzvot and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
