Family. Community. Jewish Living.

At Temple Emanuel, we are excited to explore and celebrate our Jewish heritage together.  We are especially delighted that you are interested in joining our congregation and becoming part of our Mishpacha.  We warmly welcome new members and believe that every person enriches our congregation with their own unique talents, perspectives and contributions.

You will be amazed by all the activities that take place here, Shabbat Mishpacha (family shabbat), Cooking dinner with Brotherhood at Urban Ministry, Friendship Circle lunch (Seniors 55+ join us every other Thursday) to name just a few.  We invite you to become actively engaged in the many services, programs and events that interest you most. Do poke around our website and look at our Membership Packet for a quick overview of Temple Emanuel.

Membership is based upon a concept of Terumah, a shared commitment to supporting our Temple congregation now, and for future generations. We will not turn anyone away due to financial hardship.

Please contact Laura Bonasia, Executive Director, at 336-292-7899 or at [email protected] or email Dana Schleien, Membership Chair, at [email protected], so we can meet you, give you a tour, introduce you to our Rabbis and staff, and invite you to attend Shabbat services.

We look forward to meeting you!
