Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life
The Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life is an inclusive Jewish community in Litchfield County that joins together one weekend each month for worship services, Jewish celebrations, life cycle events, and programs that present Judaism in a relevant, interactive, and creative way. We respect and observe the three principles of Judaism: worship, study, and acts of loving kindness.
The Coalition welcomes all who seek knowledge about or a relationship with the Jewish faith and people, regardless of gender, race, marital status, sexual orientation, ethnic background, or political affiliation. People with all approaches to Judaism are encouraged to participate whether they consider themselves Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative, Orthodox, Jews by choice, or participant in Interfaith relationships.
The mission of our unique and flexible congregation is to establish in Litchfield County a spiritual home and an extended Jewish family with a strong sense of warmth, connection, and personal belonging where each member is embraced, supported, and appreciated as a valued part of our community.
We seek to enrich that community by offering a variety of stimulating and thoughtful religious, spiritual, cultural, educational, and social experiences through which Judaism can be explored and practiced communally.
