Basic Information
Description
Orchard Street Shul is a warm, active, traditional Orthodox Shul that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a New Haven Landmark.After many years of limited use, a committed community has come together so that services can again be held every Shabbos and Jewish holiday, led by Rabbi Mendy Hecht, our young spiritual leader whose grandfather, Rabbi Dr. Maurice I. Hecht, served the congregation from the 1940s to the 1990s.There are many lovely synagogues and synagogue communities in Connecticut, of course, but we are the only traditional synagogue that continues to function regularly in its historic home.  We welcome regular and occasional visitors to share the Orchard Street experience.If you want an authentic, traditional Jewish experience as was envisioned by the Jews who migrated to New Haven and built our synagogue with pennies in pushkas, committed work, and authentic Jewish ritual as has been passed on from generation to generation, join us at 9:30 AM on any Shabbos or Jewish Holiday for services, Kiddush, Kibbitzing, and a Dvar Torah.
