WESTPORT, Conn. The Conservative Synagogue in Westport celebrated its 25th anniversary with a gala attended by about 300 people Saturday night.
This is an exciting milestone for The Conservative Synagogue as we have become a vibrant center for Jewish life in Westport, said Rabbi Jeremy Wiederhorn. We have a thriving congregation and are proud of the extensive educational, religious and social programs that we offer our membership and the community at large.
Started in 1987 by a handful of Jewish families who met in an office space, the congregation has grown to more than 425 families from Westport, Weston, Wilton, Easton, Norwalk and Fairfield.
The synagogue has more than 50 students enrolled in its preschool, 250 students enrolled in Kehillah, the religious school, and a number of teens are active in the Hebrew High School program .
TCS started with an ideal, then a service, a school, a building, and is now a thriving center of Jewish life, Cantor Laura Berman said. Our future is built every day, person by person, by connecting to our Jewish heritage, to Israel, to each other, and to the experiences of Jewish community that we pass on to our children.
