About Us

  

  DIVERSITY EQUALS STRENGTH. 

!ברוך הבא  Baruch haba!

Welcome!

Temple Emanu-El strives to be an inclusive, warm, and friendly community that values people of all races, ethnicities, religions, abilities, marital status, levels of observance, gender identities, and sexual orientations. Whatever your background, we welcome you to join our community in prayer, service, and Tikkun Olam, repairing the world.

At TEE, we consider diversity to be one of our greatest blessings. We have a long history of interfaith families becoming an integral part of our temple family. We believe we are stronger when we learn from and incorporate a rich variety of voices and perspectives; that doing so deepens our Jewishness; and that creating an inclusive community is part of repairing our world.

We are proud to have been among the first New Jersey synagogues to openly welcome LGBTQ+ members and communities, and we continue striving to be leaders in the social justice movement, learning from and partnering with the broader community to promote antiracism, protect human rights, and embrace all. 

We welcome you to join us on the journey. We look forward to rejoicing together in song, prayer, and friendship to express our pride in Judaism!
