Rabbi’s Blog

Thank you for welcoming me into this wonderful community.  I’m so pleased to be a part of a Jewish Reform congregation that values both tradition and innovation as it moves members to a deeper love of Torah, God, Israel and Tikkun Olam (social action).

At Temple Emanuel, everybody is welcome and our synagogue is a true House of worship (Beth Tefilah), a House of study (Beth Midrash) and a House of gathering( Beth Hakneset).

By offering a Jewish way of life from a modern American point of view.
By making feel each member unique and part of our family.
By having our children being actively involved at our beautiful congregation.

I, as Temple’s Emanuel Rabbi, would like to welcome you and meet you!!
Please, do not hesitate to call me!
