A Temple Shaari Emeth Early Learning Center mother and her child pose in front of a giant billboard with their picture on Route 9 in Manalapan. When the mother was very young, her mom enrolled her in Shaari Emeth's preschool and now, years later, she has enrolled her own children at Shaari Emeth - a second-generation Shaari Emeth Early Learning Center family. Temple Shaari Emeth has been a trusted member of the community since 1966.
Shaari 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.
