Welcome to Emek Shalom!
Temple Emek Shalom is a vibrant congregation serving the greater Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon and northernmost California.
Our primary intention as a community is to provide a gathering place where all may feel a sense of belonging, and a deep immersion in the traditions of Jewish living. We are rooted in Jewish traditional practice and custom, and we celebrate our role as participants in the evolution of Judaism by engaging our tradition thoughtfully, so it remains meaningful and relevant to each of us. We celebrate the inclusion of our LGBTQ+ community, inter-faith families, Jews of color, Jews by choice and other spiritual seekers.
In this spirit, we strive to create a Jewish community that cultivates kedusha (holiness) and hesed (caring), offers lifelong education, engages in social and environmental justice, and shares important life cycle events.
We rejoice in the diversity of our congregants and actively welcome all who seek to join us.
