Temple Emanuel of Tempe is a reform congregation that honors tradition. Founded in 1976, our congregation provides a Jewish spiritual home for more than 550 families in the East Valley area of greater Phoenix, Arizona. From preschool, religious school, adult education and senior programs to a variety of worship services, social justice projects and chavurot, there are programs to meet the needs of a wide variety of Jewish families. Temple Emanuel of Tempe is affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism.
We cordially invite you to make Temple Emanuel of Tempe your religious home and become a part of our congregational family. Members of our congregation, together with our staff, work hard to promote Jewish values and Jewish experiences through personal service to our members. We look forward to meeting you!

With the recent terrorist activities that have occurred please be assured that we are taking you and your family's safety to heart.
Temple Emanuel has working cameras located inside and outside the building. The cameras are in obvious and not-so-obvious spaces to ensure that people coming and going; as well as activities within the building, can be monitored.
The classroom section of the Temple has safety doors that are locked during preschool hours and the classrooms themselves are locked when not in use to keep people from occupying those rooms.
We check packages for place of origin and who they are addressed to make sure they are expected by staff.
The staff is in regular contact and has very good relationships with local police and fire department personnel.
