Strauss ECE Preschool Brunch for Teacher Cindy Sadowsky July 2014

Welcome to Temple Emanu-El of Tucson!

Our synagogue is an exciting and extraordinarily active place, and we pride ourselves on being a warm and caring community.  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, starting 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 Adult Education Academy.  We offer a wide variety of worship services, music and spiritual experiences. Our congregants are engaged in living Judaism at the annual congregational retreat, through meaningful social action, community outreach, active Women of Reform Judaism and Men's Club auxiliaries, innovative programming and a variety of social events. Temple Emanu-El was the first synagogue in Arizona, and we continue to be pioneers in Reform Judaism.
