May you come in peace, rest in ma’at, and leave in good health


You have arrived at the online home of the Kemetic Temple of San Jose, California and the Temple of Ra in San Francisco, California. Both are temples dedicated to restoring and celebrating the sacred rituals of ancient Egypt. From time to time we will post articles and musings on subjects of interest to the Kemetic community.

In ancient times the houses of the gods were private sanctuaries for their divine residents, but the outer courtyards of the temple complex nevertheless offered a safe and open place for people to gather. This is such a place for us, here along the banks of cyberspace. You are welcome here, and we encourage you to drop us a line with any questions or comments you may have for us, so that we may both benefit from your visit!

We have tried to avoid duplicating information easily available on other Kemetic websites. Our focus will be primarily on:

Answering questions
Explaining our approach to Kemetic worship
Providing information on our own temples
Offering advice on creating a local temple
And possibly other things as well, as they come up

Click on the JOURNAL link at the left of the page to see articles and other information.

We will attempt to respond to your emails in a timely manner, but please do understand that we hold jobs outside the temple, and we may at times receive numerous emails. We will do everything in our power to bring you a satisfactory answer within a reasonable period of time, so your patience is appreciated!

For questions about Kemeticism, the Kemetic Temple of San Jose, and Kemetic Reconstructionism, contact Richard Reidy, temple founder and author of Eternal Egypt : Ancient Rituals for the Modern World

We look forward to hearing from you!
