Welcome to Temple Emanu El

My name is David Sperling, and I have the privilege to serve Temple Emanu El as its 37th President. If you have landed on our home page and are reading this message, I suspect you may be looking for a spiritual home. Here are the many reasons I have chosen to make Temple Emanu El my spiritual home: 

Our openhearted congregation is an all-inclusive, caring community that encourages individuals to discover what it means to be Jewish today and inspires our youth to become the leaders of tomorrow. We empower our congregants to explore their passion for Judaism, lifelong learning, and social action within and beyond our walls.

Our clergy and dedicated staff continue to create meaningful programs and experiences to ensure that each congregant has the resources available to them for lifecycle events, holidays, and daily Jewish experiences.

Our current facility, constructed in 2008, is a state of the art building, that is warm and welcoming.  As you walk into the open and inviting Horvitz Atrium, you will see that our home also features a stunning large Sanctuary, intimate Siegal Chapel, as well as a Preschool and Religious School Learning Wing.

I hope you will come join me in my spiritual home. I look forward to welcoming you.

David Sperling, President
