Our mission: To be a compassionate and inclusive community that makes Judaism relevant, meaningful and joyful.
Whether celebrating Shabbat, exploring the insights and wisdom of Torah, or making a difference in our community, we are a congregational family dedicated to deepening and enriching our connection to Judaism. Our egalitarian services and programs are always open to Members and nonmembers, LGBT and ally, traditional and nontraditional families. Shaare Emeth is in the heart of St. Louis's dynamic Jewish community. We are fortunate to have a beautiful campus at the corner of Ladue and Ballas Roads in Creve Coeur, Mo., a lovely community in West County St. Louis.
