Welcome To Beth Sholom B'nai Israel
!שלום Beth Sholom B’nai Israel is a progressive Conservative synagogue located in Manchester, Connecticut. We have about 350 member-families, drawn from all over central Connecticut, including traditional and non-traditional families, single-parent families, interfaith couples, singles, and senior citizens.
Both Jews by Birth and Jews by Choice are part of our Community. We are proud of our diversity. It strengthens us as we strive to bring an open heart and a helping hand to all our Members in times of both tzuris (sorrow) and simcha (joy).
Our Synagogue offers services for Erev Shabbat (Friday evening), and Shabbat (Saturday) morning, as well as all other holidays, and a daily evening minyan. Men and women participate equally in the ritual. Members, guests, and other religious seekers who desire the warmth of Jewish prayer and the fellowship of being together are always welcome and encouraged to come. Please join us!
Our Synagogue offers many opportunities for learning: in our Religious School, in our Library, in consultation with our Rabbi or our Cantor, and in our varied Adult Education programs.
Our Congregation also offers many Activities, organized by our Social Action Committee and other interest groups, enabling Members to engage with each other and their Jewish values in the ways they find most meaningful or enjoyable. Secular groups from the East of the River community also avail themselves of our Function Rooms and Kosher kitchen for events that benefit the general public as well as our members.
