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.
