Welcome to Temple Emunah! I invite you to experience the richness of our community.
Temple Emunah offers a unique blend of the intimacy and closeness of a small synagogue with the strong programming of a large one. Here are some of what makes Temple Emunah so special.
First, and most important, the people. Emunah's multi-generational community makes Judaism come alive. Its members are committed to vibrant Jewish living and learning, creating a positive blend of modernity and Yiddishkeit. They are warm and welcoming; I could not find a better synagogue in which to live a vibrant Jewish life, to enjoy a supportive community or to raise children.
Second, the values. Temple Emunah is committed to tikkun olam, healing and repairing the world, whether it is locally among Jews and non-Jews or around the globe. The synagogue also maintains close relationships with Jews from other backgrounds and the State of Israel. It is an egalitarian Conservative congregation where women and men, boys and girls, all have equal access to our tradition and its rituals. We are also an inclusive congregation and welcome non-traditional families, intermarried families and those who are gay, lesbian or transgendered.
Third, the quality of the staff, the programs and the facility. From Emunah's Billy Dalwin Pre-school, religious school, youth groups, family education, and adult education to its religious services and beautiful new sanctuary, this synagogue provides excellence.
For these reasons and more, many of us have selected Emunah as our spiritual home. We hope that you will do the same. As the rabbi, I enjoy serving as a spiritual resource and a pastoral presence. Building upon Emunah's strengths, I seek to foster a sense of innovation and creativity in our services, schools and programs, while maintaining a deep passion for our 4,000-year-old tradition.
I hope you will call me at 781-861-0300 x122 or email me to set up an appointment.
I look forward to getting to know you better and having you join our nurturing community.
Kol tuv – all the best,
Rabbi David Lerner
