Mission Statement

Temple Emanu-El is a Reform synagogue serving the greater San Diego Jewish community.  We are a spiritual home for all Jewish people.  We provide both a modern and traditional experience for the family and the individual.  Our congregation offers a joyful experience in which our members can develop and maintain a sense of Jewish identity and community.  Through spiritual expression, study and song, and through commitment to social justice, we are covenant partners with God.

Welcome to Temple Emanu-El!
You have made an important decision to become a member of Temple Emanu-El.  We hope your connection with this Temple will be meaningful and rewarding for you and your family for many years to come.

This center of Jewish worship, learning and fellowship can exist only with the financial support of our congregants.  We endeavor to foster membership at Temple Emanu-El with an appropriate dues and fees schedule that provides the funds necessary to maintain the optimal functioning of the synagogue.

The financial obligations of our members are carefully structured so the Temple can continuously provide:

  •     An environment where the spiritual needs of the congregants are met through worship in accordance with the Jewish tradition.
  •     A religious education for children and adults that cultivates a love and understanding of Jewish faith and heritage.
  •     A facility that stimulates fellowship in the Jewish community and strengthens the bonds of loyalty with Jewish people everywhere.

Important Message
We will always make it possible for any individual or family to become a member or remain a member at a rate commensurate with your ability to pay.  We do not turn anyone away and are pledged to work with members according to their financial situation.
