A Message From Our Rabbi

Welcome to Congregation Emeth. We look forward to getting to know you. We are a warm and inclusive congregation of individuals and families who value their Jewish identities and understand the beauty of Judaism.

We are grateful to the founders of Congregation Emeth, The South Valley Jewish Community, who had the vision to form this congregation in 1976. We are an intergenerational congregation and rejoice in the gifts of our members of all ages and stages of life. Congregation Emeth is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism. As Reform Jews, we honor tradition and welcome innovation. Our congregation includes Jews from diverse backgrounds. We proudly embrace Interfaith families, LGTBQ, BIPOC and individuals on their journey to conversion.

Do you love learning? Congregation Emeth offers classes for children and adults. Do you love helping people? Congregation Emeth upholds the Jewish values of performing acts of loving kindness and engaging in tikkun olam, the work of repairing our world. Do you seek meaningful prayer experiences? Congregation Emeth celebrates the beauty of Shabbat and holidays. Do you enjoy sharing life’s journeys with others? Congregation Emeth is a place where we laugh together, support one another and make a difference in the world around us. During the pandemic, we have learned that we can experience sacred encounters even on Zoom.

We are eager to meet you and invite you to join us in sharing your Jewish journey with us. Congregation Emeth looks forward to welcoming you to the community.

Come home to Congregation Emeth!
