Congregation Beth Israel will host an American Red Cross blood drive on July 19.


Congregation Beth Israel is responding to the critical need for blood during this pandemic crisis by hosting an American Red Cross blood drive at the synagogue on Sunday, July 19 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Congregation Beth Israel is at 702 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford.

The blood drive will be completely safe for those who wish to give blood. Donors will be screened outside before they enter, and once inside, volunteers will be practicing safe social distancing between donors. The donor tables will be spaced far from each other in the synagogue’s large hall. Parking is available in the synagogue’s back lot off Fennway Road.

If you wish to donate blood, sign up at redcross.org or call 1-800-733-2767. To volunteer, contact Lisa Book at [email protected].

Congregation Beth Israel is a Reform Jewish synagogue of over 700 families, tracing its history to 1843, when Jews were first given the legal right to establish a synagogue in the state of Connecticut. Today, Congregation Beth Israel is a welcoming community where people of all ages and backgrounds can deepen their spirituality and engagement in the world through prayer, celebration, learning, and efforts to repair the world.
