We’ve Moved!

We’re delighted to share some important news about Temple Emanu-El of Rochester: we’ve moved!

We’re now at the JCC

Temple Emanu-El has relocated from our long-time home in northeast Rochester to leased space at the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center, 1200 Edgewood Avenue in Brighton. Because of current pandemic limitations and guidance, our congregation won’t physically gather in facilities at the JCC for a while longer. This gives us time to set up our new space in the JCC building to meet our congregation’s needs.

We relocated to Brighton for several reasons

  • Over time, many area Jewish families, including many of our own members, have migrated from the northeast to Brighton and the east side of Monroe County.
  • We no longer needed a building the size of our synagogue in Irondequoit, and were able to find a new owner with great plans for the building.
  • Moving to new space at the JCC gives us a convenient central location with improved visibility, parking, and facilities.

We can’t wait to welcome our friends and members to our new home

We hope to be holding in-person services, holiday celebrations, and other events outdoors on the JCC campus as soon as the weather and covid conditions allow. And we’re dreaming about being able to celebrate the High Holidays together indoors in our new space….Our website and Facebook page will continue to provide updates on all of our activities, virtual and in-person. Our new phone number is 585-461-2000, ext. 203; our email address remains emanuelrochester@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
