Temple Shalom is a proud congregational partner with the organization CONECT - Congregations Organized for a New Connecticut.
CONECT is a non-partisan, multi-faith organization of 25 diverse congregations throughout Fairfield and New Haven Counties, who have organized as one community, to affect change in the areas of social and economic justice and policies for the common good. We train leaders in the art of public life to give power to our voices and to create strong congregations and community partnerships. “The first skill we learn in community organizing is how to listen; how to engage community members in conversations. We have learned that true change, in our own lives, in our families and in our communities, emerges out of the relationships we create with one another.”
