Orthodox Jewish communities worry about stigma, misconceptions of measles outbreak

New Way to Make a Minyan

We've got a 21st century way to insure we make a minyan each day: Download Whatsapp (free) from the App store or Google Playstore. You can also click here to get the Mac or PC desktop version.

Then, locate the Beth David Chat group to join the Beth David minyan group. You'll receive daily minyan notifications. Text back "YES" if you can attend, do nothing if you can't. By counting the number of YES responses, we'll know how many people left to recruit.

Even if you occasionally or rarely attend minyan, you will know when your presence might be especially helpful and you might make a special effort to attend.

Thanks to Peter Lang for sharing this idea from his previous congregation in Mexico City! Thank you in advance from the Ritual Committee and from your friends at Beth David who are saying Kaddish for a death or yahrzeit. We are counting on you!

Welcome to Beth David!

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 Us located in the box to the right.  We look forward to meeting you!
