Choosing Judaism

Whether you grew up a little Jewish or lot, in another faith tradition or none at all, we are all ultimately Jews by Choice. Wherever you are on your Jewish journey, Temple Emanuel of Tempe is here to support you. 

Come to a Service

Everyone is welcome at our Shabbat services (held virtually for now).

Find a service that's right for you. 

Take a Class

Discovering Judaism: Temple Emanuel offers a year-long Discovering Judaism class open to non-Jews and Jews alike who are looking to further their Jewish education. 

Introduction to Judaism: The Union for Reform Judaism offers an engaging multi-session, online course for anyone interested in exploring Jewish life through a Reform lens. Learn More.

Adult Education: Learning opportunities for adults are offered throughout the year.  Visit the calendar for our latest offerings.

Connect with a Rabbi

Rabbi Olshein hopes to inspire congregants to find meaning in Jewish traditions, both in times of crisis and at times of joy, and to empower them to create their own traditions. She knows what it's like to be unaffiliated, to come from an interfaith family and to reconnect with Judaism as an adult by "trying things on." Whether you are looking to convert to Judaism or find new meeting in your heritage, Rabbi Olshein is available for one-on-one support.  

Connect with Rabbi Olshein to discuss how to further your Jewish journey.
