About Temple Emanuel

Among Jewish Life Cycle events, weddings are especially joyous occasions. Under the chuppah and surrounded by your loved ones, the spirit of kedusha (holiness) fills the sanctuary. There can be no more auspicious way to celebrate your simcha (happy event) than with the elegance and traditions of having your wedding in a synagogue setting. Whether Temple Emanuel is already your spiritual home or is new to you, you will quickly experience its warmth and sense of community.

The wedding ceremony marks and celebrates the joining of two loved ones in the sacred bond of marriage. In the Jewish tradition, this is seen as the first step in the creation of a new family setting the stage for the next generation of the Jewish people.

Temple Emanuel can accommodate wedding ceremonies from 2 – 715 people and a wedding reception up to 350 guests.

If you are interested in having your wedding at Temple Emanuel, the first step is to get in contact with our Events Director and make an appointment to discuss your big day. We’re happy to review available dates with you, discuss each wedding package in detail, and take you on a tour of the building and available spaces.

As the planning for your wedding proceeds, our Events Director will be happy to work with you, your wedding planner, florist, photographer, approved kosher caterer and others to assure that your simcha is perfect in every way.

    Temple Emanuel in Newton MA is a wonderful location for any Jewish affair. They have constructed their building to serve a range of different functions. In addition to just being a beautiful space, the Synagogue has on staff a full-time Events Coordinator who helps you walk through the details of your day, making sure that all your needs are met. The facilities manager is always on hand to make sure things run smoothly. There is only one real downside to the venue and that is the limited parking. The shul does not have a large parking lot, and since it is located within a densely populated residential area guests need to find street parking.
