We are a diverse community comprised of people of all Jewish backgrounds, interfaith families, singles, and all spiritual seekers. Everyone is welcome. Temple Emanu-El is a Reform congregation whose members reside throughout Union County and beyond. From its beginnings in 1950, Temple Emanu-El has sought to combine progressive Jewish ideals with a continuing respect and appreciation for the timeless traditions of Judaism. Our worship is joyful, participatory, and inclusive. Our Shabbat services, Friday evenings and Saturday mornings, provide a diversity of worship experiences, from Shabbat Hallelu to Zimrat Shabbat, from Simchat Shabbat to traditional egalitarian services. We invite you to experience the wonderful place that is Temple Emanu-El. Our doors are always open to those seeking a spiritual home.
