Welcome to Emek Shalom!
Temple Emek Shalom is a vibrant congregation serving the greater Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon and northernmost California.
Our primary intention as a community is to provide a gathering place where all may feel a sense of belonging, and a deep immersion in the traditions of Jewish living. We are rooted in Jewish traditional practice and custom, and we celebrate our role as participants in the evolution of Judaism by engaging our tradition thoughtfully, so it remains meaningful and relevant to each of us.
In this spirit, we are committed to life long education, to hesed (caring), to cultivating and being open to kedusha (holiness) on all levels of community life, to tikkun olam (repairing the world), and to sharing important lifecycle events. We rejoice in the diversity of our congregants and actively welcome all who seek to join us.
