A Reform Congregation in Livingston New Jersey

Temple Emanu-El of West Essex is a Reform Jewish community that brings us together to celebrate our simchas (joys), provides support for other times, and meets our religious, educational, social, and cultural needs. All ages are inspired by our rabbi and cantor to perpetuate Judaism by engaging in lifelong learning, embracing Israel, performing acts of social justice, cherishing the Torah, and worshipping together. Our diverse community is welcoming to Jews of all backgrounds including interfaith families and Jews-by-Choice. Within our warm and inviting surroundings, Temple Emanu-El encourages meaningful participation and creates a special sense of belonging.
