Which plaques do you think she be up on our timeline of pride? Please scroll down for descriptions and choose your two favorite achievements by clicking the box next to each title.
Choose two:
Morning Minyan
It is rare for a small synagogue to boast a daily minyan, and yet through the dedication of our members and their commitment to each other, we gather each morning for prayer, Torah, laughs, and shots of single-malt. Through our daily minyan, we offer a place for congregants, guests, and Wesleyan students and parents to come to say Kaddish and remember and honor their loved ones. As the theme song of “Cheers” suggests, morning minyan is a place where everyone knows your name and is always glad that you came.
We hosted a presentation from the Israeli Consulate on Rosh Hashanah and built a community day of learning around Tal Becker, Principle Deputy Legal Advisor at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We have taken several trips to Israel including the most recent trip in 2013 and an upcoming trip in 2018.
Medical Ethics
A couple of years before the BRCA gene was a popular point of discussion in the Unites States, Phil and Sheila Saxe enabled Adath Israel to host a tremendous panel featuring An ACLU lawyer, a geneticist, an ovarian surgeon, and Rabbi Haaz. The field of bioethics is a great laboratory for how Jewish text and tradition contributes to cutting-edge scientific discourse and personal decision-making. We have hosted other bioethics conversations including a special Shavuot study session on Physician Assisted Suicide in partnership with staff from Middlesex Hospital.
College Program
Three times a year our college and graduate students away at school receive a letter from Rabbi Haaz and care packages to help them celebrate Jewish holidays with friends.
Energy Efficiency
A generous donation from the Director family allowed us to replace the many lights in our synagogue with energy efficient bulbs. Coupled with an energy friendly HVAC system installed in 2011 and 2014, Adath Israel continues to strive to be green.
