Shalom and WelcomeCongregation Beth Ahm is a Modern Conservative synagogue led by Rabbi Alan Lefkowitz.
Created by 16 families in 1951, it was initially known as The Jewish Community of Greater Windsor. In September 1960, we opened our doors in a newly built synagogue at our current location.
Our members live throughout Greater Hartford and include interfaith families.
Our membership dues are reasonable and affordable, and less than those of other synagogues in our region.
We offer complimentary HIGH HOLY DAYS tickets to our members and to Jews
and their families who are not members of any other synagogue, and we welcome donations we receive in gratitude.
