Emanu El means “God is with us.” At Temple Emanuel we are creating a sacred community that connects us with one another, with the greater Jewish community in Saint Louis and North America, with Israel and the Jewish people, with our neighbors, and with God – without plaques, tickets, or barriers.
We are a community of people searching for spiritual connection through sacred action within the framework of an open-minded, non-judgmental Reform Judaism. Our tent is broad and open, welcoming all kinds and styles of families and individuals. We are committed to lifelong Jewish learning through questioning and intellectual inquiry, warm, meaningful and participatory worship, and an intimate scale that lets us know one another personally.
We invite you to be emanu – with us as we laugh, eat, drink in moderation, sing and play music, pray, learn, act in the world, help others, and pursue justice in holy spaces at the appointed times.
Come and see for yourself. You are welcome to visit us at any time. There is always a place for you at Temple Emanuel.
