Congregants, Visitors and Friends:

We are doing our part to help save lives by “flattening the curve” and slowing the spread of disease, by closing our doors physically at this time.  At the same time, we are thriving and remain connected by holding Friday Night, Saturday morning, and Saturday night services on Zoom, as well as many other electronic activities and connections.
MEMBERS: For easy access to WES Zoom events, please log in to the Members Page.

For assistance or if you'd like to know more, please call 212-579-0777 x 220 to leave a message and we will get back to you!
