    Homemade Rosh HaShanah Challah

Shalom 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. Our congregation reflects the diversity of today’s society – 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, provide a unique school for our children, 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.

L’Shanah Tovah – Happy New Year!

All of our High Holiday services and events are free and

open to the community – no tickets and no fees.
