Temple Emunah offers a unique blend of the intimacy and closeness of a small synagogue with the strong programming of a large one.  Our members are committed to vibrant Jewish living and learning, creating a positive blend of modernity and Yiddishkeit.  Temple Emunah is committed to tikkun olam, healing and repairing the world, for Jews and all people locally and around the globe.
