Shalom and Welcome

Temple Beth David is a warm, caring Reform Jewish community based in Cheshire, Connecticut that serves the greater New Haven area. We offer our members a place to come together, to learn, to pray, and to work for social justice.

Visit our Facebook Page for Additional Information and Updates on Temple Beth David Programs

  • The Temple building is closed for the time being. The office will be open for business-as-usual, with Rabbi Micah Ellenson; Director of Congregational Learning and Engagement, Jodi Harris; and Office Manager, Stephanie Frank, working remotely.
  • Please know that your Temple community is here for you. If you need help of any kind, please contact  office@tbdcheshire.org or call (203)-272-0037 and we will try to match you with the appropriate resource. And, Rabbi Micah is always available to talk - rabbiMicah@tbdcheshire.org.
  • We will be suspending religious school until further notice. In the meantime Jodi will be sharing age-appropriate materials to help keep our religious school students happy and engaged. We will be suspending Shabbat Services in the sanctuary until further notice, but we will be conducting on-line Shabbat services.
  • We will not be holding our annual Community Passover Seder and are evaluating other events on a case by case basis. In the meantime we're looking at alternative ways to deliver our programming. If you need help in finding a seder to participate in please let us know.
  • Please see the schedule for remote events offered this week.  Meeting links will be distributed via Constant Contact and are also available on the Temple Calendar.  To access the Zoom meeting information please click on the calendar link at the top of this page then click on the event that you are interested in.  Zoom meetings are indicated with a red color bar on the calendar.

Childcare during services
We are now providing childcare for our young members so their parents can have a full worship experience! We encourage ALL children to come to services, but recognize that after a long day, they may need some play time with their friends!
