President Dick Caplan

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you will gain a perspective of our wonderful synagogue, and how you would be blessed here. We are neatly tucked away in a residential neighborhood close to the center of town. I am proud to be the leader of a synagogue whose rich history here in Wallingford dates back to more than one-hundred years. We are often known as the little Shul with the big heart.

Here at Beth Israel Synagogue, it is our desire to provide services that will meet your spiritual needs and the needs of the community-at-large. We are involved with the community shelter and help promote other community projects.

Our Hebrew education is staffed by excellent teachers that are well respected in the greater New Haven community. Classes are open to all whether affiliated here or elsewhere.

I am extremely proud of our Saturday morning adult Torah study with breakfast provided. Our spiritual leader, Rabbi Alpert, opens up a diverse discussion and makes relevant to us meaningful applications to our lives.

The hallmark of what makes us unique as a synagogue is how we welcome interfaith families.

Thank you for taking the time to become acquainted with us. Please feel free to visit us as often as you like. We look forward to meeting you.
