We see ourselves as more than just an egalitarian Conservative synagogue.  We are a warm, vibrant, innovative community where members enrich each others’ lives as we join together to worship, study, engage in tikkun olam, and celebrate holidays and life cycle events.  With a membership of just 70 families, we are like an extended family with lots of room for you to join, participate, and grow.  We invite you to join us any Friday evening (6pm) or Saturday morning (9:30am) for Shabbat services, or one of our other upcoming events.

The Jewish community of Reno can be proud of their accomplishments since 1879, including the creation of Congregation Temple Emanu-El in 1921.
