about our Rabbi.
Emanuel Synagogue, the Conservative synagogue for the Oklahoma City area, is home to some 200 member families and individuals. Our congregation is close-knit and friendly, like a big family. Most of us have known each other for years (often for generations), but we're thrilled when newcomers ask to join us, and we do everything we can to make them feel welcome and integrate them into our community.
Our synagogue membership is diverse, including people of all ages and a wide range of Jewish backgrounds (Conservative, Orthodox, Reform, and Jews by marriage or by choice). What we all have in common is our commitment to maintaining our Jewish culture and heritage for ourselves and for our children and grandchildren.
As Conservative Jews, we respect Judaic traditions and study Torah while seeking to make them relevant to busy lives in the modern world. For example, Emanuel Synagogue is proud to sustain the only morning minyan in Oklahoma City, held each morning, Sunday through Friday, in the upstairs chapel.

Emanuel is a sister synagogue to Temple B'nai Israel, Oklahoma City's Reform congregation. A number of our members belong to both congregations, and we often share resources and conduct activities such as youth programs together.
