Beth Emet is a diverse, multigenerational Reform community with a dynamic approach to Judaism. Our congregation seeks to create a spiritually vibrant, socially conscious, intellectually challenging, and deeply caring environment firmly rooted in Jewish tradition and values.

Beth Emet's commitment to community extends beyond the walls of the Synangogue and into our surronding neighborhoods. Strong connections have been made with churches, mosques, and with various religious leaders to form special relationships, create and implement social service projects, and to learn from one another.

One of our stronger partnerships is with Evanston's Second Baptist Church. In 2013, 38 teens from Beth Emet and Second Baptist Church spend their spring break on a journey through the southern United States to collectively understand one another's religion, histories, and experiences. The trip was called Sankofa, a West African word that means "go back and get it," and that emodies the idea that we must look to our past so we can undersand and build our future. pdfRead more about this remarkable partnership and experience. 

More than 30 volunteers from four diverse Evanston-based congregations prepared meals for needy families, entertained senior citizens, restored prairelands, and shared emotional moments of communal prayer and reflection during Unity WeekendUnity Weekend in April 2013.
