Beth El Synagogue is a small, egalitarian congregation with more than 100 years of history.  We are proud to be affiliated with United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.  The only Conservative synagogue in Litchfield County, we are located in the center of Torringon across from the historic Victorian Coe Park and draw our membership from throughout Litchfield and Hartford counties.

Under the guidance of our award-winning, esteemed spiritual leader, Rabbi Richard L. Eisenberg, we offer all Shabbat, holiday and life-cycle services, an extensive adult education program, Bar and Bat Mitzvah training and a Judaica library in a welcoming and family-oriented setting.

Saturday Shabbat services are held weekly and Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat services periodically. We welcome those who wish to say Kaddish. Experience our inspirational High Holy Day services, led by Rabbi Eisenberg and Cantor Theodore A. Perry. We are proud of our adult education program that includes classes, Sunday sessions with the Rabbi and a Lox & Lecture series. Our adult education programs are open to non-members.

For membership information, call our office. We have both full-time and associate members. Beth El Synagogue welcomes all. Members in good standing receive tickets for the High Holiday season at no additional cost and may purchase tickets for their adult children and other relatives at a reduced rate. Non-members may purchase tickets through our office. We look forward to meeting you.
