Welcome to Adath Israel

We have been greater Newtown’s Synagogue for 100 years and proudly continue our tradition of welcoming all to join us in celebrating Jewish tradition and learning in a progressive, modern setting. Our unique membership includes descendants of the original Jewish farmers who built the synagogue, interfaith couples, congregants from diverse Jewish backgrounds as well as those new to Jewish tradition. We look forward to sharing our synagogue and community with you and welcome you to join us for our next 100 years!
