Who We Are
Welcome to Temple Emanuel Sinai – our Jewish home.
Temple Emanuel Sinai in Worcester, MA is the center of Reform Judaism in Central Massachusetts. We come from a wide variety of backgrounds, religious traditions, and denominations within Judaism. We are inclusive and welcoming. We focus on engagement with positive transformation – for ourselves, our relationships, our community, and our world.
In Judaism we believe all human beings are created b’tzelem Elohim – In God’s own image. Each of us, created in God’s image, has unique gifts. Temple Emanuel Sinai holds open its doors to welcome all. In doing so we are strengthened and enriched as we worship, learn and celebrate together.
As a congregation we are guided by Torah and ancient Jewish tradition. Chesed – loving kindness – is at our core. We value life long education and learning. We worship together in ways which are solemn and joyous; contemporary and innovative. Yet the generations who came before us would clearly recognize the core liturgy. We care deeply about one another as individuals and as an entire community. Tikkun Olam and Social Justice call upon us to look outward and put our Jewish values to work in our local community and the wider world.
We look forward to seeing you join our community or simply stop by in person or online for any of our services and events at any time!
