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.
