Welcome to Temple Emanu-El!

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.

Do you want to know what the Reform Movement is doing to protect and promote core Jewish values? Do you want to know how we, as individuals, and as a congregation can participate in this effort?
The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC) is working to engage Reform Movement congregations and their members to channel individual and collective concerns into the protection of vulnerable populations through advocacy and organizing at the federal, state, and local levels.   
The RAC’s Urgency of Now Resource Center, which is being updated in real-time, contains a variety of ways to take action, including filling out legislative and transition-related action alerts, signing up for RAC emails to stay informed, registering for training webinars, and reading the latest press statements that have been issued on transition related matters such as appointments, DACA, and more.
