Our members reflect the diversity of the Atlanta area, coming from all walks of life and many different religious backgrounds and ethnicities. We welcome Jewish singles and single parents, interfaith families, Jews of color, and Jewish families in all their diversity, including LGBTQ couples with or without children.
Our programs are designed to meet the diverse spiritual, religious, educational, and social needs of our members. We want to celebrate the happy times with you and support you and your loved ones during the tough times, as well.
There are many ways to become involved with our Temple Emanu-El community and to become acquainted with other congregants. During your first months, we hope to get to know you so that we can connect you with programs, groups, and classes that complement your interests. We offer a warm and inviting atmosphere in which you can expand and explore your Jewish life. We will invite you to special “new member events” during your first year with our congregation.
If you are interested in being part of a small group of temple members who get together to socialize, learn, and enjoy Jewish living, we will help you join a Chavurah. As you engage actively with your fellow congregants, you will not only grow your Jewish experience, but you will also strengthen the synagogue community to the benefit of all.
We encourage you to get to know our rabbis, cantor, educators, executive director, and other staff by attending Shabbat services and by your active involvement in our programs and activities. You may also request a private meeting with any of our clergy or staff.
Your 100% tax deductible membership contribution to Temple Emanu-El makes it possible for us to build and maintain a synagogue community that secures the future for the Jewish people.
All Jews, or those with Jewish partners, are welcome to become members. To learn more about membership, contact our executive director Stephen Blick or fill out the Membership Interest Form below.
