Mission & Values

Our Mission & Values


We draw on Judaism’s wisdom to nourish a spiritual, educational, and cultural community. We also reach beyond our walls, taking pride in building bridges, promoting dialogue, and creating a world of justice and peace – the work we call Tikkun Olam


We believe that Judaism evolves from generation to generation. Inspired by our traditions, we embrace change; we question, and seek meaningful answers. In this way, our community is both timeless and timely.


We know that we are better together, and we see our diversity as a blessing. We value accessibility, inclusion and integrity. We continue to grow a community which embraces Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and all those who support them.

But don’t just take our word for it…

The best way to find out about our wonderful Temple family is to experience it for yourself. Everyone is always welcome at Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom. Come to any of our Shabbat services, festive holiday celebrations, or exciting programs and activities. You will be warmly welcomed by our friendly Rabbi and members of our congregation. Please be sure to say hello. You can also email us with questions or to arrange a conversation.
