Celebrate the Holidays at Temple Emmanuel This Year!

Thursday, September 11

Rabbi Michael Luckens will be leading us.

We will be using a new Reconstructionist Mahzor to enable people with a variety of backgrounds, practices, and beliefs to participate more actively in the prayer services. The traditional Hebrew text, a full transliteration, a new translation that is both readable and meaningful (and davenable!) plus a column of commentaries — all on the same page.

We're having an Open House, along with Havdalah & Selichot Services.  Join us!!

Temple Emmanuel of Wakefield is now a Reconstructionist Congregation!

Tuesday, August 27   |  Tags: reconstructionist

Temple Emmanuel has recently become a Reconstructionist congregation and is a member of the Jewish Reconstructionist Movement.  In the coming year the leadership of Temple Emmanuel will be working to embrace Reconstructionist philosophy that includes the creation of Shabbat and Festival Services that are more uplifting, more spiritual, more engaging and more inclusive for those who have difficulty joining in because of challenges in reading Hebrew, as well as to attract those who find the conventional service lacking.  We are excited about becoming a Reconstructionist synagogue and invite you to learn more about the process and philosophy.
