Welcome to Temple Emanu-El
Temple Emanu-El is a Reform Jewish synagogue, affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism. It is located at 6299 Capri Drive, in the neighborhood of Del Cerro, in the city of San Diego, California. We strive to build in our congregation a community and a family for our membership. We hope your connection with our temple will be meaningful and rewarding for you and your family.
Social Action Center
Mitzvah of the Month: February
This month, we will continue collecting items for cold and wet weather to assist those who are facing winter without basic necessities. In addition to blankets, we welcome rain ponchos, umbrellas, gloves, hats and other items to help those in our San Diego community stay warm and dry.
Blankets and other items may be used, but clean and in good condition. They will be given to the Alpha Project, the Veterans’ Winter Shelter, and others in need in the San Diego area. For more information, please contact Larry Ponseggi at (619) 444-9163 or email@example.com
Please bring all donations to the Social Action barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple, and members of the committee will deliver them.

Temple Emanu-El was a sponsoring congregation for the 10th year running. The event drew almost 600 volunteers from Churches, Synagogues, and the Islamic Center. This year in addition to individual and family volunteers our SanETY youth group participated along with Rabbi Benj.
This was a robust park beautification project during which a dozen large trees were planted, a lot of mulch was spread, and unwanted brush and trash was removed. After the clean-up every one was treated to a free hot dog lunch and live music from the Bayou Brothers Cajun music band.
