Temple Emanuel is a vibrant congregation in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Located in McAllen, one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, we are the spiritual home to a diverse and multi-generational congregation. Our members come from varied Jewish backgrounds, and while Temple Emanuel is affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism, we strive to meet the needs of our traditional members. Temple Emanuel is dedicated to maintaining our Jewish heritage and traditions while respecting the individual’s views and religious expression.
