Join Us

Congregation Emanu El welcomes you to join our congregational family. Since 1944, Emanu El has been supporting Israel and the freedom of expression from both pulpit and pew. In the more than 70 years since our founding, we have continued our devotion to these ideals, alongside our commitment to the Jewish people, Jewish learning and service to humankind.

We celebrate a love of Jewish culture and life through worship as well as programming. 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.
