Temple Emanu-El, New York City

(30+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Like all sanctuaries, Temple Emanu-El is a visible token of the presence of God in the midst of His people. It sheds a beauty that is the beauty of holiness, and it stands as a beacon light in a tradition that stands as a champion of justice, brotherhood and peace.

Founded in 1845, Temple Emanu-El is the third oldest Reform Jewish congregation in the United States. Its odyssey mirrors that of the Jewish community in New York. Originally located on a remote corner on the Lower East Side, it moved progressively, both geographically and spiritually, further uptown, and is now located in the very heart of New York City, on the Upper East Side.
