Welcome to Temple Emanuel, a Conservative, fully egalitarian congregation affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts. Our membership of 1,200+ families represents a diversity of Jews from Newton and surrounding communities. With our broad spectrum of religious, cultural, social & educational activities, there are as many reasons to join Temple Emanuel as there are Jews in our congregation.
Watch and listen to Voices of Temple Emanuel, a series of interviews with our members about how Temple Emanuel has touched their lives.
We look forward to welcoming you into our community!
Temple Emanuel is honored to be a Synagogue Partner of the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project (RSIP), working to create a community where people of all abilities are welcomed, valued equally and able to participate fully. Being a RSIP Synagogue Partner will connect Temple Emanuel with the resources, expertise, and training in order to be a more welcoming synagogue.
"We hope our partnership with the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Program will accomplish two worthy goals. One, it will allow us to do right by all the persons who enter our community. Two, whatever we learn, we are happy to share with other synagogues and communal organizations in Greater Boston. Together, may all of us in Jewish communal life seek, find and respond to the Tzelem Elohim, the image of God, that is in every one of us." - Rabbi Wes Gardenswartz
