Temple Emanuel of North Jersey has reached a critical point in its glorious history and traditions. Founded in 1906, the first Temple was built on Van Houten Street in Paterson in 1907. The congregation followed the population and moved to Broadway and East 33rd Street in 1929 to a magnificent art deco building designed by Fredrick W. Wentworth.
Upon entering the main sanctuary, one was awestruck by the enormous stained glass dome. In addition, twenty one glorious tall windows, created by the Payne Studios, graced the walls. Included in the twenty one are depictions of the six days of creation, biblical stories and Judaic ethics.
After seventy five years in Paterson, the congregation is thriving in Franklin Lakes. We have purchased a building and are preparing to remove, renovate and reinstall our treasured stained glass dome, windows as well as three sets of the Temple’s bronze entrance doors.
We need your help in order to maintain these unique treasures. We are looking for full participation, not only from our members, but also from anyone who recognizes the artistic value of these items.
Opportunities are available to rededicate the dome, windows and doors in memory or in honor of a loved one. By your participation you will have the opportunity to perpetuate the “heart” of Temple Emanuel.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. If you need further information, please contact us.
