FVJC-Emek Shalom is the center of Jewish life in the Farmington Valley and beyond, offering a warm, inclusive, intergenerational community for all who seek it. We come together to engage in worship, Jewish learning, social events, and social action initiatives designed to foster a sense of community and connection.
We offer a full spectrum of meaningful worship opportunities, life cycle events, an engaging religious school, and fulfilling social and educational programming in a warm and welcoming environment. Across generations, we learn together (Torah), search for holiness (avodah), and participate in acts of kindness (gemilut chasadim). These pursuits allow us to create wholeness, fulfillment, and a pathway to peace (shalom) for ourselves, our community, Israel, and our world.
We embrace diversity in all its forms and are inspired by the wisdom of our tradition to welcome the stranger and seek to make all who enter our sacred space a part of the FVJC-ES family. Our religious school, worship opportunities, educational and social programs create a community based on inclusiveness where everyone is truly welcome.
