Join us for a kosher brunch and learn about the roots of Beth El and Emanuel in the North End of Hartford, as well as the Faith Adventist church that now uses the building.
The Emanuel Synagogue, our region’s first Conservative congregation, stood at the intersection of Woodland and Greenfield Street near Keney Park for 40 years, from 1927 until 1967. In 1953, a group of Emanuel families who wanted a synagogue in West Hartford organized Beth El Temple, which opened in 1956. Speakers will share reflections on the history of the two synagogues and the church that have shared connections to this building.
