Welcome to Temple Emanu-El!
Our synagogue is an exciting and extraordinarily active place of prayer, study, creativity, and social justice. We are a warm and caring community, and we'd love to help you become a part of our congregational family.
Temple Emanu-El is many things for our congregants: a holy place to worship God, a center to learn about and experience our amazingly rich Jewish tradition, a comfortable location to meet and make friends, a working center of living Judaism. It is also a place of creative exploration, where we can seek that which moves and excites us religiously and intellectually.
At Temple Emanu-El, we honor the tradition of lifelong learning, from our NAEYC-accredited award-winning Olga and Bob Strauss Center for Early Childhood Education, to the Sam and Jane Kurn Religious School, to our outstanding award-winning Adult Education Academy. We offer a wide variety of worship services, music and spiritual experiences. Our congregants are engaged in living Judaism through meaningful social action, community outreach, at the annual congregational retreat, active Women of Reform Judaism and Men's Club auxiliaries, innovative programming and a wide variety of social events. Temple Emanu-El was the first synagogue in Arizona, and we remain energetic pioneers of Jewish life in Arizona.

Prayers for Peace in the Middle East
July 31, 2014
... It is tragic to see the awful destruction that war brings, to know that no matter what some may believe is being accomplished through acts of terror or intimidation there is no lasting security that can be accomplished through battle and trauma. We human beings have long memories, and the destruction of war usually brings not shleimut, peace or wholeness, but acts of revenge and further violence. READ MORE
