Who We Are

Who We Are

Temple Emmanuel is a small, open and welcoming Jewish community in Wakefield Massachusetts.  We offer a contemporary approach to Judaism while maintaining a respect for traditional Jewish values.  We invite all to participate in our active schedule of religious services, educational and cultural events.

In 2013, Temple Emmanuel affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist Movement.  We are dedicated to creating a caring and inclusive community, and to enhancing Jewish life through learning and communal activities.  In doing so we hope to pass on our values and traditions to future generations of Jews.

At Temple Emmanuel our doors are open to all Jews regardless of marital status, race, national origin, gender, economic condition, disability or sexual orientation.

Join us for Shabbat services every Friday evening at 8:00 PM and Saturday morning services on the first and third Saturdays of every month.  The first Friday of each month features Shabbat Shira, a warm, intimate, joyful, and spiritual Shabbat Service that allows for complete participation.
