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. Temple Emanuel is affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism, and in addition, we strive to meet the needs of members from every stream and Jewish background. Temple Emanuel is dedicated to maintaining our Jewish heritage and traditions and celebrating each individual’s views and religious expression.

Learning &
Living Torah

Study is second only to prayer in Judaism, and we celebrate our incredible heritage here. From childhood to adulthood we join together for many opportunities to grow in knowledge and understanding together. We have an energetic community Religious School, a robust and attentive b’nai mitzvah program, and multiple Adult Learning opportunities each week.

Celebrating Life's

Moments Together

Throughout our lifetimes, our community comes together to celebrate and honor important moments and changes. We are all connected to the traditions of the past, and Temple Emanuel is our home for the rituals that add holiness and meaning to special moments. From year to year and generation to generation, we are connected.
