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
