Shalom and thanks for visiting our Temple Emanu-El website

We are a Reform Jewish Congregation in Rochester, New York, a few minutes from downtown. Our members are Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and those drawn to Judaism, including multiracial, LGBTQ+, and interfaith households – we invite you to share in our warm, informal approach to Reform Judaism. We share a rich heritage, a vital Jewish community life, and a promising future. We worship together, study together, work together to better the larger community, and often get together simply because we enjoy each other’s company. We see ourselves as a family, where everyone is appreciated, no matter who they are or how they celebrate Judaism. Our worship services are low key and personal, and always include time for sharing news about our lives. We’d love to welcome you to a service or event.
