Our Mission

Temple Emanuel strives to be a place of Keruv, of closeness to God and Jewish culture.

Temple Emanuel’s mission is to bring its congregants closer to:

  • Tikkun Olam: The commitment to repair God’s world through the pursuit of justice;

  • Tikkun Nefesh: Personal and spiritual growth as a Jew and as a human being;

  • Talmud Torah: Life-long study of Torah and of Jewish history and tradition;

  • Am Yisrael: The Jewish people, in Greensboro, the United States, Israel, and worldwide;

  • Eretz Yisrael: The land, people, and state of Israel;

  • Mishpacha: A sense of extended family through a warm and supportive atmosphere;

  • Reform Judaism: Its principles and values.

Diversity and Inclusivity Statement

Temple Emanuel is committed to inclusivity: Hachnasat Orchim (Hospitality) means welcoming people of different cultural backgrounds, races, nationalities, sexual orientations, genders, gender identities, gender expressions, physical and mental abilities, and ages.

We recognize Jewish identity from both matrilineal and patrilineal descent.

Our Rabbis are open to officiating at Jewish ceremonies for interfaith marriages.


Appreciating the critical role played by non-Jewish parents in the upbringing of

Jewish children, we encourage full participation in congregational and religious life

by interfaith families. 

About Us

As a diverse congregation, we explore Jewish traditions, culture, rituals, and history in a warm environment that is inclusive, relevant, and inspirational. Preschooler or retiree, teen or mother, survivor or corporate climber, there are meaningful services, ceremonies and engaging events for everyone.
