Click Here for Latest Activities and Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

The above link will provide current information of Congregation Kol Haverim's activities and responses to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). 

You can view our High Holiday services as follows:

  • Please use the following Boxcast link to join all of the High Holiday services on your computer:

    It leads to a web page with a player ready to show the next broadcast, as well as a short welcome video from the Rabbi. The playback can be made full-screen.  If you are using an Apple device, you should be able to mirror it to your TV.
    Note: We removed the inserted video frame from this page as it was causing our site to load very slowly.
  • You can also view our High Holiday services on your television by adding the Boxcast app to your ROKU, Apple TV or Amazon Fire device.  After adding Boxcast to your device, search for the “Kol Haverim” channel.  This is as easy as viewing a Nextflix video!
  • Each High Holidays stream can be watched at its scheduled time on the scheduled day, or viewed later from an archive version that will appear in the channel about a day after the broadcast.
  • Services are open to all this year.  If you wish to make a donation to support Congregation Kol Haverim, you may do so from THIS LINK.

In keeping with longstanding tradition, Kol Haverim will once again collect food and personal care items to benefit families served by Greater Hartford Foodshare. The bins will be delivered on Friday, September 25 and picked up on the morning of Tuesday, September 29 (the day after Yom Kippur). Donations can be dropped off any time during that period. Our contributions will be particularly welcome as Foodshare employees work to support families throughout Greater Hartford during this difficult time.


Kol Haverim is a place where our community comes together to share our lives and to strive to make this world a better place.

We come here to learn, pray, celebrate and support each other with love and kindness.

Our ongoing mission is to create a vibrant, sacred congregation where each individual can feel at home and contribute his or her Jewish perspectives and personal talents to inspire us all.
