The Temple Emanuel Torah Center engages students in Pre-kindergarten through 7th grade* and their families in Jewish life and learning.  With so many different  opportunities to join our community – inspiring learning courses and activities, meaningful family worship and holiday experiences, important social action programs, informal youth gatherings and more… there is something for everyone! The programs we offer help our families to build a lasting foundation for living a Jewish life.
