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 Fridays at 7:00 PM on and the Temple Emanu-El Facebook page.

The Honolulu Jewish Film Festival Presents a Film Event for the Month of April:

"Exodus 1947"
Streaming April 15-30

This one hour PBS documentary narrated by Morley Safer follows the Exodus 1947 voyage, which acted as a catalyst in forming the new state of Israel. The film focuses on clandestine and "illegal" American efforts to finance and crew the most infamous of ten American ships that attempted to bring Jewish refugees to Israel.

There is no charge to stream the film, though donations are welcome to help underwrite the cost of this and other HJFF events. Participants will receive a confirmation email with the film link and password that is good for one viewing of the film per household.
