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.
