Welcome to Beth Israel Synagogue
We are an independent, egalitarian Jewish community that welcomes all spiritual seekers. Proud of our ancient faith, we combine the study of our sacred texts with prayer that is engaging emotionally and spiritually. In our charming, 100-year-old building, we nurture a community that is caring and joyful.
SUMMER TIME NOTE: In June, July & August, Friday night services will be held on June 22, July 6 and August 3. Saturday morning services will be held on June 9, July 14 and August 25. If you would like a service on another Friday night or Saturday morning, please email Rabbi Alpert. Weekly Friday night services will return in September.
Our Paint and Sip Fundraiser took place on Sunday, April 29 at Splat Art Studio in Wallingford. We had a full house as we sipped wine and painted our masterpieces!

Here's a Passover dessert you'll actually look forward to!
Filling in the calendar for this edition of The Shofar, I couldn’t help but notice that it opened with a Bar Mitzvah and closed with a Bat Mitzvah. These are very special services not only for the families of these new teenagers but for our entire congregation. And, they are special for me in a number of important ways.
