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.

At a Time of Crisis in Israel
July 11, 2014
Having just returned from Israel right before this crisis exploded, I can tell you that during our travels throughout the Holy Land in mid-June on the 4th Temple Emanu-El Pilgrimage it was as beautiful and peaceful as I have seen Israel in a long time. It is an incredibly vibrant, wonderful place.
And now, things are shocking and terrible. READ MORE
Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon
This has been a very difficult ten days or so for Jews everywhere, but especially so for Israel and for all of us who love her. So much has happened in such a short period of time that it is worth recapping it all, painful as it may be. READ MORE
