60 Years on the Pali: Members Share What Temple Emanu-El Means to Them

While Covid-19 has altered how we study, pray and observe our High Holidays, we would like to invite you to join us in celebration of our wonderful community.

Listen to members of our congregation reflecting on their connection to Temple Emanu-El.

To help us perpetuate our spirit of “shaloha” here and around the world, please consider a gift to our Temple High Holiday Fund.

About Temple Emanu-El

Temple Emanu-El is a spiritual, cultural and social center of Jewish life for those who live on or visit the island of Oahu. It is Hawaii's largest and only affiliated Union of Reform Judaism (URJ) Jewish congregation. It is our mission to help one another feel closer to God's presence and kindle the divine light within one another.

This goal is accomplished through meaningful prayer, attainment of wisdom through study, Tikkun Olam and cultural/social events. It is also achieved by having facilities which befit an inspiring Beit El or house of God.

At Temple Emanu-El, we’ve added aloha (love from Hawaii) to our treasured Jewish concept of shalom (peace) to create our own greeting. We hope that you will feel our warmest shaloha every time you enter our special Jewish place in Hawaii.


The Temple Office is closed until further notice. To get in touch with the office, please email
or call 808-595-7521.

Virtual Shabbat Services  will be streamed Friday, November 20 at 7:00 PM on and the Temple Emanu-El Facebook page.
