Welcome to Temple Beth Emeth!

Welcome to Temple Beth Emeth and our website. We invite you to become a part of our active and activist congregation. Our community is built on its cooperative spirit where everyone contributes their fair share. No one is ever denied membership based on their ability to pay. We value diversity, and we welcome all who are interested in practicing and learning about Judaism, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or abilities. Our congregation includes many interfaith families and Jews-by-choice. Temple Beth Emeth's goal is to provide for the religious, educational, social, and social justice aspirations of all members.
