Welcome to The Emanuel Synagogue

We invite you to join us!

We are a diverse, egalitarian Conservative Jewish congregation in West Hartford, and the first Conservative synagogue established in Connecticut

. . . . for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people (Isaiah 56:7)

At The Emanuel Synagogue in West Hartford, we strive to offer an inclusive and welcoming environment, open to people of all backgrounds.  A religious bill of rights is an integral part of our synagogue by-laws, and Jews by choice are embraced.

Here you will find a down-to-earth atmosphere and culture of acceptance that offers a welcome refuge from the pressures of today. We have a strong professional team and many opportunities for congregant participation and leadership. Families with special needs children find The Emanuel a haven of welcome and understanding.

LGBTQ, Interfaith, Singles, Families, Seniors; all are welcome!

Join us for services, or sample one of our classes or events so you may experience warmth, spirit, and depth of our community firsthand. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have: Kobi Benita, Executive Director
