As newly settled residents of Wakefield, we began our search for a temple. We found it in Temple Emmanuel, a welcoming, casual congregation with a religious school for our children and adult and family religious, cultural, and social events, all in a beautiful building within walking distance of our home. Years later,  we continue to call Temple Emmanuel our Jewish home! Sue and Harris

The Temple Emmanuel community has been very welcoming to our interfaith family. We are happy to have found such an inclusive and diverse congregation to support our children’s Jewish education and identity. Esther

In 2014, I wanted to attend services and was particularly interested in finding a Reconstructionist synagogue. I felt so fortunate to find Temple Emmanuel located in the next town over from my home. The community was so welcoming that I felt like a member almost immediately. Rabbi Greg is dynamic, inclusive, and deeply knowledgeable, and the services are joyful. There are also many wonderful events that add so much to my life! Laura

We invite all to participate in our active schedule of religious services and educational and cultural events.
