About Us

Welcome to Temple Emanuel of North Jersey!

Temple Emanuel of North Jersey is a community that welcomes participants from all backgrounds and ages.  Our community is the heart and soul of our congregation.  We value individual spiritual growth, Jewish learning, and acting in the world to make it a better place.  Our prayer services are traditional, egalitarian, and Conservative,  in which Jewish men and women participate equally.  We encourage interfaith families to join us and become a part of our community.  Our membership includes individuals and families from Bergen and Passaic Counties, New York, and beyond.

Our synagogue is located in Franklin Lakes overlooking the beautiful Franklin Lakes Nature Preserve. Visit us! Pray with us! Learn with us!
