Our mission: to be a compassionate and inclusive community that makes Judaism relevant, meaningful and joyful.

We are proud to be considered 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 members and nonmembers, LGBT and ally, traditional and nontraditional families.

Staff and lay leadership offer many opportunities for enriching one’s Jewish life, including holiday celebrations, social programs, outreach to interfaith couples, interpreters for the deaf, social action programs, musical involvements and continuing education.

Shirlee Green Preschool, early childhood engagement programming, a religious school, summer camps for kids ages 6 weeks to 13 years, and an innovative b’nei mitzvah program offer valuable options for Jewish youth education. Youth groups provide activities during the school year for grades 4-12.

Adult auxiliaries and groups include a choir, older adults group, MOSHE (Men of Shaare Emeth), Yiddish Club, Cooks and Books, Knitting Group, Torah study and more. Our Tzedek Committee organizes and leads the congregation in tzedakah collections and social justice activities.

We invite you to visit our Temple and to join our Shaare Emeth family. Flexible financial commitment levels are available. Shaare Emeth is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism.

Renee Silverstein is President.
