Temple Emanu-El is a spiritual, cultural and social center of Jewish life for those who live on or visit the island of Oahu who choose to live their Judaism in a variety of ways. 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 special greeting. We hope that you will feel our warmest shaloha every time you enter our special Jewish place in Hawaii.

Temple Triple Match 2018

We are excited to launch our second Temple Matching Campaign! A year ago you answered the call when we launched our first-ever campaign resulting in a wonderful year.

This year several generous individuals have pledged to donate $80,000 if an additional $40,000 can be raised through this campaign. If we reach our goal, we will meet (in fact exceed) our current  financial requirements and we will have the funds to continue all our major programs.

 Help Us Reach Our Goal!
