- Temple Emanu-El is a Reform synagogue serving Boston's North Shore Jewish community. The Temple is the spiritual home to nearly six hundred families, and educates more than 300 students in the religious school. Our interfaith families play a vital role in the programming and leadership of the congregation, not only in the area of Outreach, but also in our Religious School, our Young Families group, and our Social Justice work. We are a diverse congregation in the midst of an exciting time of transition and programming growth, having just added a second rabbi to our staff for the first time in many years. We welcome your family to join us for worship, study, service, and celebration.
