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 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 invite you to our community, which is built on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, a Jew by birth or by choice.
