The oldest Jewish congregation in Kansas - Wichita’s Congregation Emanu-El was founded in 1885. Since inception, we have been the region’s home for Reform Judaism. Today, we are a growing, vibrant community of 100+ families practicing progressive, liberal Judaism in America’s Heartland. We have always been committed to welcoming all - regardless of background or affiliation - who are curious about, respectful of, and steeped in our faith to join us in exploring the Jewish concept of “Tikkun Olam” (Repairing the World). Visitors, guests, and new members alike will experience something exciting - individuals collaborating - by sharing their unique gifts, talents, and perspectives, and operating at their highest potential - to make a better tomorrow for our congregation, our community, and the world.



We are currently considering relocating to the proposed Wichita Jewish Community Center. Join the discussion and - members - watch for meetings and votes.


The High Holy Days are almost here. We have a full calendar of traditional services from Selichot through Simchat Torah. Learn about the Days of Awe and find our calendar.


Our annual tradition continues - plan to join us SUN., NOVEMBER 10, 2019 from 10:30AM-4PM for full meals and a la carte items. Tickets and pre-orders available NOW.
