Coordinates: 30°05′07″N 94°06′21″W / 30.0854°N 94.1059°W / 30.0854; -94.1059 Temple Emanuel is a Reform Jewish synagogue in Beaumont, Texas.

The congregation was founded in September 1895, and erected its first building in 1901. This wooden building in Neo-Byzantine style design was replaced by the congregation's current brick building in 1923.[1]

Particularly notable are the congregation's set of six windows, each 16-feet high, designed by Ze'ev Raban. The windows were commissioned from Raban in 1922 by Rabbi Samuel Rosinger. Each window depicts an event in the life of one of the principal Hebrew prophets, Jeremiah, Elijah, Elisha, Ezekiel, Moses, and Isaiah.[2]
