Welcome to Temple Emanu El

Adam Abrams, President

Recently celebrating its 70th anniversary, Temple Emanu El has blossomed into a leading Reform Congregation in Cleveland, Ohio.  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 atrium, you will see that our home also features a stunning large sanctuary, intimate chapel, as well as a Pre-school and Religious school facility. 

Our openhearted congregation is an all-inclusive, caring community, that encourages individuals to discover everything we have to offer.  Fostering the ability to build relationships, encourage lifelong learning, and become involved with social action.

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.

Inspired by our past, our synagogue is also built on our future.  Our youth continue to be an inspiration for all.  Our teens continue to be leaders in the local community and the regional youth organization. 

I hope you come and get to know us.  Our goal is to create relationships with our fellow congregants that will last a lifetime.  I look forward to personally welcoming and meeting you.

Adam Abrams, President
