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.

Zoom services are approximately an hour long and include a mix of Hebrew (with transliteration provided), with both traditional egalitarian and interpretive translations. If you would like to join us for services, please email admin [at] westendsynagogue.org (Joan)admin [at] westendsynagogue.org () for Zoom access..
