Congregation Beth Israel is one of the Northeast’s largest Reform congregations, serving about 900 families of diverse backgrounds. Clergy are Senior Rabbi Michael Pincus, Assistant Rabbi Andi Fliegel, and Cantor Lauren Phillips. Our progressive congregation offers religious services and learning programs for all ages. Our history dates back to 1843, the first year Jews were given the legal right to establish a synagogue in Connecticut.
Beth Israel bridges the past with the present — and the future — by striving to remain a meaningful and inspiring force in the lives of its members.
Our mission is to serve the lifelong spiritual and educational needs of our congregants, within a welcoming and caring contemporary Reform Jewish community.
