Events at Emunah

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are modifying our services and programs for the foreseeable future. We want to do our best to protect our members and contribute to the global effort to slow the spread of the virus, and thus help protect the capacity of our health care system. As many of our services and programs as possible will continue, but on-line. See below for more details.

Temple Emunah Activity During COVID-19 Period

After careful consideration of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we have decided not to hold any public activities at Temple Emunah or elsewhere in-person for the time being. This is in keeping with the announcement by Governor Baker closing many institutions and banning gatherings.

We are developing ways to care for our members who are home-bound and would like assistance with meals, errands, and other needs. If you are in a situation that requires support, please reach out to one of our clergy. We ask anyone who is in either in need of support or anyone who would like to offer assistance to fill out this short survey.

Services and many meetings or classes will be held if possible virtually. Details of the services are available in the Calendar. Since our building is closed, Shabbat services will be held through a Webinar (Friday night services are at 6:15 PM, and Saturday morning services begin at 9:30 AM.) We will be using Siddur Lev Shalem in our services. 

  • All in-person gatherings, programs, and services, whether scheduled to take place in the synagogue or outside of it, are cancelled or postponed.

  • The building is closed to community members (kisi has been temporarily suspended).

  • During this time, we will continue to examine how to provide teaching, worship and programming opportunities virtually, and we will continue to monitor the situation.  

  • Weekday services will take place on-line.

  • Staff and clergy will continue to work (remotely from home), and will be available by phone and email. If you have pastoral needs during these weeks, please reach out to either Rabbi Lerner or Rabbi Kling Perkins.

  • For administrative issues, please contact Raveetal Celine  (781-330-9589).

With prayers for briut (health) for all of us and for the entire world.

Welcome to Temple Emunah

Temple Emunah is a dynamic, engaging, inclusive, and welcoming congregational family. We build Jewish identity through learning and praying together in the spirit of Conservative Judaism, caring for each other and the world, and working to create an enduring Jewish community in the United States and Israel. Temple Emunah welcomes the participation of interfaith couples and families and people of all abilities, backgrounds, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and gender identities.

Reflections on what Temple Emunah means to me: please read these beautiful remarks by Kate Hermann-Wu and Doreen Grossman, given at our Decades Shabbat Celebrations this year.
