Temple Outside

At Temple Emanuel, we seek to inspire A Lifelong Jewish Journey through a passionate commitment to Jewish life, learning, community and spiritual growth.

We want to build a community based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, a Jew by birth or by choice.

Temple Emanuel is the largest Reform Congregation north of Boston and an active member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ). Temple Emanuel of Andover has become the religious and educational center for Reform Judaism in the Merrimack Valley. We invite you to become part of our community. Visit our Preschool and our Religious School. Join us for a service or one of our many social, cultural and educational programs. It is our hope that you will find these spiritually fulfilling and enjoyable. 

Please feel free to stop by or contact the Temple Office at 978.470.1356. Our staff is always happy to answer your questions. We look forward to speaking and meeting with you personally. Click here for New Member information

High Holy Day Ushers Needed

We encourage men and women to perform this mitzvah. Ushering includes checking tickets, helping people to their seats, handing out or collecting prayer books and assisting in maintaining order throughout the building during services. This is a great way to get involved at the Temple and start the New Year off with a mitzvah. Please sign up online to volunteer as a Temple Emanuel usher during the 2016 High Holy Days. A few days prior to the holidays you will receive Ushering Guidelines via email. Sign up here. For more information, please contact Neal Roberts.
