Welcome to Our Community

Welcome to Temple Shaari Emeth. Founded in 1966, we are a Reform congregation located in Manalapan, New Jersey, in western Monmouth County. We are a member congregation of the Union for Reform Judaism, the largest denomination of Judaism in the United States. As a progressive, egalitarian Jewish congregation, women and men have equal responsibilities and privileges, and we are welcoming toward interfaith families, persons of any ethnic background or sexual orientation, and individuals who are Jewish by choice as well as those who are Jewish by birth.

Please browse through our pages to learn more about the Temple Shaari Emeth family. Feel free to contact us at our main telephone number, (732) 462-7744, by email, or visit us in person at any Friday night service. Our synagogue is located at 400 Craig Road, Manalapan, NJ 07726 (click for directions). We look forward to meeting you.

Dear Friends,

In conjunction with our 50th Jubilee Anniversary events this year, we are creating a virtual e-journal for our congregation, friends and the local businesses to commemorate this signi cant milestone for Shaari Emeth.

You are invited to extend your special congratulatory acknowledgements by placing an advertisement in the journal. The journal will be screened at our 50th Jubilee Celebration at Black Bear Country Club on Sunday, September 18th.

  • The journal will be available online for viewing for an entire year to anyone who visits the Temple website
  • Ads will have almost instantaneous exposure since they will be activated online in the journal within days of submission.

To place your ad in the journal, please go here.

We need your help to ensure that this endeavor is as successful as we know it can be. In appreciation of your help in soliciting ads, two admissions to the Gala event will be awarded for every $500 worth of ads brought in by an individual. Order forms can be obtained at the Temple or can be downloaded from the Temple website here.

We sincerely thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the Gala Celebration on September 18th.

Sincerely yours,

Anniversary Committee

Temple Shaari Emeth has been a trusted member of the community since 1966.

Shaari Emeth Confirmation students visiting Washington, D.C

2015 RAC TripShaari Emeth Confirmation students visiting Washington, D.C. to participate in a political action seminar and to lobby their Representatives on critical social issues. As Reform Jews, we take the commandment, "Justice, justice shall you pursue" very seriously. We seek out injustice and apply ourselves to remedy the wrongs of society. The Temple Shaari Emeth Religious School (Hebrew School) instills these values in all of our students.
