We offer a reform siddur for Shabbat services and festivals and a conservative siddur for the high holidays.  We are a warm, inviting and spiritual Temple.

Temple Emmanuel is a place not only for services, but also for communal assembly and education about our culture and religion. We welcome and honor Jewish and interfaith persons of diverse backgrounds, ages, denominations, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities. Our purpose is to serve as a focal point for congregants’ social, intellectual, and spiritual needs. Read More

We will continue following all suggested protocols so those that can attend services in person will do so. And we will continue offering the ability to “attend” our inspiring services virtually.
