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

Temple Emanuel Featured Events

A Rabbi, a Priest and a Minister Get on an Airplane... An Exciting and Fascinating Way to Travel to Israel!
This spring (March 28-April 8, 2016) a group from Temple Emanuel, along with members of Christ Church and South Church in Andover will be travelling to Israel. This interfaith journey is designed for vigorous adults who have never been to Israel, or have never visited the Holy Land with a mixed group of Jews and Christians. There is something quite moving for Jews and Christians to see the sights holy to other faiths through the eyes of their fellow travelers.
The trip will be led by the clergy of the three houses of worship: Rabbi Robert Goldstein, Rev. Michael Hodges and Rev. Dana Allan-Walsh. The first informational meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 2, 2015 at 7:00 pm. at Temple Emanuel. Anyone interested in the trip should attend.
Rabbi Goldstein, Rev. Hodges and Rev. Walsh will be available to answer any and all questions.
For more information about this amazing journey, call the Temple office.
