- A Reform Congregation That Seeks to Unite the Riches of Jewish Tradition With Modern Openness. We are a Reform congregation of 155 families and we welcome traditional and non-traditional Jewish families and singles to come and worship with us. In addition to our 155 families, we share the building with Temple Beth-El, a Conservative congregation of 103 families who lead their own services weekly. Founded in 1950, Temple Emanu-El began worshipping in a classically Reform fashion. Over the years, we have slowly integrated some of the religious practices associated with the new Reform movement. Our warm and welcoming environment provides an atmosphere in which to assemble, study Torah, and worship.
