Welcome to Beth David!

Check out the Jewish West Hartford Video! 


We’re glad you found us.

Beth David is the largest orthodox synagogue in the greater Hartford area. For more than 70 years we have been a center of Jewish cultural and spiritual activity for hundreds of families, thousands of people and untold numbers of visitors and friends.

Members come from all over the world and from diverse Jewish traditions to form a friendly, committed and engaged congregation.  We are proud to be part of a thriving and energetic Jewish community in a remarkable town astride the Red Sox/Yankees divide (our Rabbi, a Braves fan, is above that fray), convenient to Boston and New York, home to renowned research, education and medical facilities, with urban amenities and rural tranquility all within easy reach.

If you're planning a visit, please be in touch so that we may welcome you and show you what our community and synagogue have to offer.  Click here to let us know when you'll be in town.  If you're already local, please fill out our contact form to the right.  We look forward to meeting you!

Calling All Curious Jews...

Recently, in 2017, we challenged Rabbi Adler in our third Al Regel Echat program. "On just one foot", the Rabbi answered pre-submitted questions from congregants.  Read more at "On Just One Foot"...

Thanks to Rabbi Adler for his deft fielding of over 20 questions last Shabbat for our third "Al Regel Echat". A rapt audience heard the Rabbi extemporaneously speak on issues relating to Jewish views on everything from the resurrection of the dead, the responsibility of the criminally insane, potential changes in our mechitza, modesty expectations for men vs women, the Crown market, killing of terrorists, the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, and whether someone can FaceTime or Skype in participation in the minyan and even more. Many more congregants swarmed the Rabbi afterward to ask more pointed questions and witness him give "Speed Sermons". Don't wait to find out what you've been wondering - Rabbi Adler is always available to connect!
