A message from the president:

Congregation Beth Shalom is the home of the Fairfield Jewish community and our friends worldwide. It’s a place to gather and pray together. A place to celebrate joyous life events like Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and weddings. And a place to gather in solemn remembrance of family and friends who have passed on. Most of all it’s a place where, over the decades, we have become a family.

Our children received their Jewish education at the Hebrew school. We’re hopeful that another generation will follow in their foot-steps. So yes, we support and sustain Beth Shalom for our own sake. But we do it also for future generations who will come, seeking a place to celebrate and be with their fellow Jews.

The Jewish New Year comes early this year. Traditionally, it’s the time we renew our commitment to support the synagogue. It’s gratifying that membership has risen in recent years. We encourage those who just purchase High Holy Day tickets to consider a full membership. Every little bit helps to sustain the infrastructure that helps to sustain our community. We appreciate your support and welcome your input.

L’Shana Tova Tikketevu Vetehatemu

May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year (in the Book of Life).

Marc Berkowitz, president
