Important Update Regarding Coronavirus

We are continuing to take preventative measures to ensure the care and protection of our congregation.The Temple facility is now closed pending further notice. Please know that if you are home bound, scared, or need advice or guidance, our clergy and Temple Emanu-El staff are here for you. Please continue to check our website for the most up-to-date information on events, Shabbat services and live streaming.


 Temple Emanu-El follows a proud tradition of Reform Judaism with a focus on Torah and worship, education, social action, Jewish culture, Israel and leadership.

COVID-19 Relief Fund

Please consider making a donation to the COVID -19 Relief Fund. This fund was created in order to provide the resources to assist congregants adversely impacted by the fallout from COVID 19; primarily, but not exclusively, through dues relief.  The fund would also be used to help ensure the continuing operations of the Temple.

Happy Passover from Temple Emanu-El!

Seton Hall Survey

Below is a link to a brief on-line survey that has been prepared by Seton Hall Business School students in conjunction with our Strategic Planning Task Force. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete, and your answers are completely confidential. Your candid opinions are extremely important as the Temple works to make our programs and services more relevant to you and your family.  

We are extremely grateful to the Seton Hall Students who have worked diligently on our behalf. All of their in-person classes have moved on-line and this project is helping them complete their semester. So please help them too – by participating.

Thank you for your time. We hope that you and your family are, and will continue to be, healthy and safe.
