Hi, this is isn’t a spider. It looks like some kind of Assassin Bug (Reduviidae). You might have better luck at a more specific ID on a site that also focuses on insects (iNaturalist for example).

Hi, I think it is in genus Leptoglossus, possibly L. zonatus. They are leaf-footed bugs. Leptoglossus insects have been submitted to this site several times because they were mistaken for spiders. They often have orange tips on their antennae such as in your photo.
