Our Rabbi

Rabbi Nathan Farb is the spiritual leader of Temple Emanuel, and he is inspired by the energy and diversity of the community in McAllen.
Rabbi Farb is a passionate and warm, approachable figure, with a “head in the clouds and feet on the ground.” He loves Jewish scholarship, archeology, mysticism, and especially our rich tradition of midrash and storytelling. His compelling sermons and classes often incorporate Jewish stories, true-life stories, and sometimes even personal stories of inspiration.


Our Congregation

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 adverse and multi-generational congregation. Our members come from varied Jewish backgrounds, and while the 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 with respecting the individual's views and religious expression.
