Adath Israel of Middletown CT is an egalitarian conservative synagogue. We have many diverse families and all are welcome. Our members are from all over this area as well as many other states, including Florida and Arizona. Our contribution rates are one of the lowest in the area.
Each month our adult education committee holds lectures or has guest speakers both about Judaism and what is going on in our community.
Our Religious School is home to close to 30 students ranging in ages from 5/6 years old to 15 years, and many of our teachers are from Wesleyan University. We also have a program geared to our preschool age. Mazel Tots is a free program held each Sunday for Jewish preschoolers and their parents to get together and “hangout”, learn, schmooze and play.
We offer morning minyan every day. We have Friday night and Saturday morning services and a family Pray Eat Sing service one Friday a month where services start a little earlier and we all have a wonderful Shabbat dinner together afterwards and then sing songs as a community. We also have an interfaith cemetery.
We house one of the most extensive antique Judaic collections in the country, and we are now in partnership with Wesleyan University in preserving and showcasing our wonderful treasures.
Our choir performs at the High Holidays as well as other functions throughout the year.
