Temple Emanu-El is a Reform congregation serving the communities of Sarasota and Manatee Counties, including Lakewood Ranch.

Temple Emanu-El is one of the five kindest and most friendly congregations in America, according to Reform Judaism Magazine. Every guest is greeted warmly and introduced to others. People come here and find friends. It does not take long for members and children to be known by name.

Temple Emanu-El thrives with activity. Every day there are classes, lectures, films, performances, and nationally award-winning programs. Our active Sisterhood and Brotherhood plan the social events that bring us together and build friendships. We are energized for Social Action and Social Justice, with special emphasis on reading readiness and hunger. We are devoted supporters of Israel. Once you find our congregation, you will never be bored.

Temple Emanu-El is spiritually alive. Our rabbis are soulful and engaging and care for us deeply. The services burst with attendance with spectacular music in a variety of styles. Come this Friday and see for yourself!

We are a family here at temple. We look after each other in time of illness or loss, and we celebrate and share our simchas. Most of us do not have family in town, so we cherish the community we have built together at temple.

Come and see why we have grown every year to become the largest congregation in the area and the vibrant center of Jewish life in Sarasota, Manatee, and Lakewood Ranch.
