About Temple Beth Emet of Burbank

Founded in 1958, we are an independent congregation with its roots in the Reform movement. Our basic philosophy is that a synagogue should be a house of worship, study, and gathering. We try to be a place where all Jews feel welcome and comfortable. We learn from each other and grow together. We accept people wherever they are in their Jewish experience, and offer the opportunity to grow in the direction they choose. Together, we form a diverse family, bound together by our love of Judaism - and each other! Come discover why Temple Beth Emet is like no other temple you have ever experienced! We would love to have you be part of our family!

This year marks the 60th Year Anniversary of Temple Beth Emet of Burbank! As we prepare for our upcoming anniversary celebration, we are busy with both improving and updating the Temple.  While attendance for both our Religious School and newly opened Preschool have been thriving, we find ourselves having to deal with many building maintenance issues, due to heavy winds and rain of this past season. Our goal is to raise $18,000 to achieve all of the improvements necessary to continue to provide a safe, quality, positive learning environment for our children, as well as our members of our congregation.  The children are what makes this Temple special and it is our hope to provide them with the most positive experience possible.  We chose the figure $18,000 to represent "Chai" which is the Hebrew word for "Life." Donations can be made via check or by going to our Temple Beth Emet – Face Book page & clicking on here.  


Temple Beth Emet Preschool is now accepting applications for children ages 2-5 for the 2018/19 school year!
