and thanks for visiting our Temple Emanu-El website. We are a Reform Jewish Congregation in Irondequoit, New York, a few minutes from downtown Rochester.

We feel fortunate that we share a rich heritage, a vital Jewish community life, and a promising future. Our congregation reflects the diversity of today's society - we invite you to share in our warm, informal approach to Reform Judaism

Shabbat services take place on Friday evenings at 8:00 PM, except for the third Friday of the month when they start at 7:30 PM and are followed with a discussion session led by Rabbi Herzbrun. During the summer, all services begin at 7:30 PM.

To find out more about our congregation, please click “About Us” on the menu bar. Better yet, come visit us. 


On October 25, Rabbi Morais, Leslie Schwartz and Michael Perlson led the Board in a Strategic Planning Workshop
