We want you to stay safe, healthy and connected. That’s why we will be providing you with the services and programs from the comfort of your home. While we all may be practicing physical distancing, thanks to the wonders of technology, we can still be a part of the incredible community that we are. 

As we monitor the progression of Covid-19 and heed the warnings of those in charge, we feel it is in the best interest to cancel ALL IN-PERSON PROGRAMMING AND EVENTS indefinitely. We are monitoring the CDC, Federal and local government recommendations. Please check back for further updates.

VIRTUAL OFFERINGS
Check out all we have to offer online! As with all forms of technology, we encourage you to test the platform first to assure that you are comfortable with it. We hope all things work according to plan, but appreciate your patience and understanding if they don’t! Feel free to contact us with questions and feedback.

B’NAI MITZVAH
B’nai Mitzvah tutoring will continue as scheduled virtually. As of now, B’nai Mitzvah families have been given the option to postpone their March, April or May simcha (we will allow for this with the Torah Portion they have already been studying) or to have a service with immediate family in attendance only.

EVENTS and GROUPS
All in-person events and programs have been cancelled through April 30, 2020. Stay tuned for virtual offerings.

RELIGIOUS SCHOOL
Religious school will follow the West Hartford Public School closings. Rabbi Rosenbaum is available for virtual tutoring and will be in contact with each family.

PASSOVER SEDER
Sadly, our annual Community Seder on April 8 will not be taking place. Our clergy is working on some providing resources and virtual plans for a seder.  More information to follow. 

OFFICE
The office staff will be working remotely when possible and is able to respond to phone messages and emails. The building and office are not open to congregants or the general public. The building is closed. Please return to the homepage for more information on live streaming services and events that will be simulcast via Zoom.
