We Welcome You


Welcome to Farmington Valley Jewish Congregation-Emek Shalom! We are a reform congregation dedicated to creating, sustaining, and nurturing the Jewish community in the Farmington Valley, and perpetuating Judaism in all aspects of life.

Our Temple began as twelve Jewish families coming together in a Simsbury home. Today, our congregation includes more than 300 families.

Nearly one-third of our congregation belongs to an interfaith family. We offer a variety of celebrations, education programs, and worship opportunities for our varied interests. We want to build a community based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, a Jew by birth or by choice.
