A Message From Our Rabbi

Congregation Emeth consists of a group of individuals and families who believe in the value of a strong Jewish identity. We celebrate the richness of our Jewish heritage, honor the work and commitment of those who came before us and are dedicated to building a strong, cohesive and connected Jewish community.

As Reform Jews, it is important to us that we demonstrate our religious beliefs. We offer a rich set of programs and services including religious school, adult education, Shabbat and holiday services and social activities. We encourage you to find your place within the congregation to apply your talents, your professional expertise, and most importantly, your passion for Judaism to support and advance the good work the congregation is doing.

Congregation Emeth welcomes people from diverse Jewish backgrounds and traditions. We embrace interfaith families as well as non-Jews who are on the path to conversion. We welcome LGBTs.

Come learn with us! Come celebrate Shabbat and holidays and help us bring Torah alive! We are waiting to welcome you, to have you become part of our congregational family.

Come home to Congregation Emeth!
