Social Action


Redeeming the World

Together, we can radiate grace into our world.

Temple Emanuel is a community of service. On these pages, you will find information about some of the projects we have worked on in the past, about some of our 6th grade mitzvah projects and about ways you can get involved.

If you have questions or comments, feel free to be in touch with our social action committee.
