Temple Emanu-El



About Temple Emanu-El


Temple Emanu-El is a synagogue community and a center of Jewish life in Hawaii. Its members are dedicated to the religious and ethical values of Judaism. In perpetuating itself, the Temple is committed to worshiping God, studying Torah, the pursuit of Jewish education, promoting Jewish identity, enhancing Jewish life and pursuing social justice.


Temple Emanu-El is Hawaii's largest and only affiliated Union of Reform Judaism (URJ) Jewish congregation, the largest movement in Reform Judaism. In addition to providing reform Jewish services, the Temple is also a venue for Jewish and Israeli culture. We feature a full time preschool, Gan Yerushalayim. We also house the School of Jewish Studies, which is our supplementary (Sunday) school for Judaica and Hebrew for children in grades K-8.

11:00 am

Join us for our Annual Congregational meeting! Come hear a wonderful presentation of a new vision for Temple and its Nu'uanu campus, as well as the implementation of the new 4 pillar organizational structure for the incoming Board of Trustees and leadership opportunities for community members.

The day will begin with a nosh at 10:00 am and will end with a potluck BBQ. Please bring a salad or dessert to share with the congregation.

We look forward to seeing you there!
