Congregation Shaare Emeth is a compassionate and inclusive community that makes Judaism relevant, meaningful and joyful. We are proud to be one of the leading Reform congregations in North America. Whether celebrating Shabbat, exploring the insights and wisdom of Torah, or making a difference in our community, we are a congregational family dedicated to deepening and enriching our connection to Judaism. Our egalitarian services and programs are always open to all – members and non-members, LGBTQ individuals and allies, interfaith families, children and adults of all ages, two-parent and single-parent families, empty nesters, and singles. We are fully inclusive to those of all abilities.

Our clergy, staff and lay leaders welcome you to enrich your life through Reform Jewish worship, holiday celebrations and education, social programs, programs for interfaith couples, social action and advocacy, music, mindfulness practice, and more.

The Shirlee Green Preschool and other early childhood engagement programs, ouroutstanding Religious School programs, Camp Emeth and Camp Micah, summer day camps for children ages 6 weeks to 13 years, as well as our innovative B’nai Mitzvah and two-year clergy-led Confirmation program are among our acclaimed Jewish youth education programs. Our nationally recognized youth groups for those in grades 4-12 offer informal youth activities throughout the year.

Programs for adults include our adult choir, Older Adult and Senior activities, men’s, women’s, and all-gender activities, our Yiddish Club, Knitting Group, Torah study classes, and more. Our Tzedek Committee organizes and leads the congregation in tzedakah collections, advocacy campaigns, and social justice initiatives for all ages. We are also proud to be home to the Jewish Mindfulness Center of St. Louis.

We invite you to visit our Temple and to join our Shaare Emeth family. Membership is open to all and our voluntary membership responsibility is respectful of all. Shaare Emeth is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism.

Michael Lefton serves as President.
