We Welcome You

Doors FVJC ES

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 200 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.

Yom Hashoah - Reading the names of Holocaust victims

The Farmington Valley Jewish Congregation of Simsbury will again hold its annual 24 hour vigil of reading names of victims of the Holocaust for the holiday of Yom Hashoah this year. We will begin on May 4th at 6PM at Eno Memorial Hall and continue reading names non-stop until 6PM on May 5th. Please consider spending 15 minutes speaking the names and remembering. *If we were to read all 6 million names, it would take approximately 350 days of continuous reading non stop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
