  Young Israel of West Hartford

 

The Young Israel of West Hartford is warm diverse and vibrant Modern Orthodox congregation. We aspire to inspire personal growth and social responsibility as well as to strengthen our connection to our heritage, the Torah, our tradition, our Mesorah, and our homeland, the State of Israel. 

As a synagogue and as individuals, we seek to cultivate an environment that values each member of our community and connects across generations from babies to bubbies

More than just a synagogue, the Young Israel of West Hartford is a warm and loving community seeking to inspire individuals and families of all ages, backgrounds, levels of education and observance.  Please join us for a Shabbat, a service or a program, and we are confident that you will find a warm and welcoming home.

UPDATE

(West Hartford News)

Young Israel of West Hartford raised over $3,300 in donations and directed other direct contributions to help support Israelis displaced by the devastating fires this past November, and to resupply Israel’s Fire & Rescue Services. The 1,773 fires in Israel left 1,600 Israelis homeless and destroyed hundreds of apartments and buildings, and 4,900 acres of forests and open land.

Young Israel of West Hartford members Fran and Gene Wittenberg spearheaded the synagogue’s effort reaching out to the Greater Hartford community with an emergency request asking the community to join forces to help our brothers and sisters in Israel through direct financial aid. The money raised through Young Israel of West Hartford’s Israel Fire Emergency Fund reached the people of Neve Tzuf, a community that suffered extensive damage; the town of,Zichron Yaakov, which needs blankets and other pressing items as well as helped resupply and aid Israel’s Fire & Rescue Services though the Jewish National Fund - JNF Emergency Fund and to the Jewish Federations of North America Emergency Fund"

Rabbi Tuvia Brander of Young Israel of West Hartford commented, “At moments like these, it is incumbent upon us to come together as a community to take action and show our support for our brothers and sisters in Israel.” This project continues to build on one of Young Israel of West Hartford’s core mission goals — to promote and strengthen our connection to the people of Israel, the land of Israel and the State of Israel.
