Temple Emanu-El welcomes interfaith families who are looking for a Jewish home 

We have special outreach events during the year, including the immensely popular Interfaith Family Chanukah Party. Both Jewish and non-Jewish spouses feel part of the congregation and fit right in. The community is warm, and open, and just right for you.

Our Social Action Committee also sponsors a number of programs each year in partnership with area churches and the local Islamic Center. We celebrate Martin Luther King's birthday with the Westcoast Church, and we have an annual luncheon with St. Martha Catholic Church addressing issues of social action. Everyone looks forward each year to the Feast of Abraham Dinner, attended by the members of St. Martha Church, the Islamic Center, and Temple Emanu-El.
