Temple Emanuel is a Reform congregation serving the Jewish community of Central Massachusetts. Located in Worcester, MA, we are a dynamic regional and spiritual center, dedicated to serving an integrated, multi-generational community of members and friends. We are affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ). We feature joyful worship services, festive holiday programs, engaging adult education and meaningful opportunities to engage in social justice and social programs that are fun for all!
Our congregation is affiliated with Pardes, the Worcester Jewish Community Religious School.
Temple Emanuel is a open and welcoming congregation, committed to helping all those interested in Judaism, including interfaith families, to find a comfortable synagogue home. We believe that our unique blend of traditional and liberal Jewish practice provides a nurturing environment for all those who seek to explore the richness of our tradition and find spiritual meaning in our modern world.
In keeping with the ideals of the Reform Movement, we are egalitarian and GLBT friendly.
In keeping with the Jewish custom of Hachnasat Orchim, welcoming guests, we encourage individuals and families who are considering membership to join us for worship services, programs, or to learn more about our congregation.
We offer a special welcome to our fellow congregants from Temple Sinai during our year of integration.
