About Temple Emanuel

Temple Emanuel is a synagogue wedding venue located in Newton, Massachusetts. This team knows the joy that each simcha (happy event) brings, and how this is elevated by the elegance and spirituality of a synagogue. In the Jewish tradition, marriage is the first step towards creating a new family and the next generation of the Jewish people. This egalitarian and inclusive conservative temple invites Jewish couples of all sexual orientations to celebrate their momentous occasion in their sanctuary. Whether or not the temple is your spiritual home, you will find a friendly and welcoming clergy that will unite you in marriage with your love.

Facilities and Capacity
Temple Emanuel has a number of facilities where you can host different phases of your wedding. Ceremonies under the chuppah are held in the sanctuary, a cavernous and atmospheric space that can seat as many as 715 people. Several banquet halls are also available for your cocktail hour and reception. The largest of these is the Adelson Community Hall combined with the Benjamin Vestry, which together hold 350 for dining and dancing. These rooms can also be separated to accommodate more intimate celebrations. Additional halls include the Leventhal-Sidman Community Court, the Reisman Hall, the Brezniak Patio, the Gann Chapel, and two meeting rooms. Event rooms can be fully transformed with the décor of your choosing to suit your tastes and preferences.

Services Offered
Rental of the venue comes with access to an Events Manager, who will work closely with you to plan every detail of your big day. In addition, Temple Emanuel is a conservative synagogue that follows kashrut as a basic tenet of Judaism. If you rent the venue for your reception dinner, you must adhere to the temple’s standards of kashrut, regardless of your personal practices. This allows all Jewish community members to feel comfortable eating in the space. In light of this, the team provides a list of approved kosher caterers in the Boston area that can prepare and serve on the premises. Your booking will also include tables, chairs, help with setup and cleanup, and parking.

    We highly recommend using Temple Emanuel in Newton as your wedding venue and reception site. We were married at Temple Emanuel in Newton in July of 2017. During the planning process, the events manager, Erin,and the Temple Emanuel staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. They worked with our vendors to make sure that everything was in place on the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Erin and the Temple Emanuel staff did such an amazing job and helped make our wedding appear virtually flawless. Throughout the planning process and even after our wedding day, Erin and the Temple Emanuel staff promptly responded to our requests and questions. It really felt like they cared about making our wedding day perfect, and we could not be more pleased.

    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.
