About Temple Emanu-El

Temple Emanu-El was founded in 1978 by a daring group of Jewish families living on the north side of Atlanta. They pioneered a spiritual home for families to come together as a community to live a vibrant Jewish life. Our motto has always been, and continues to be: “Temple Emanu-El, where friends are family.”
