Westville University events for the 2018-2019 term are being compiled under the new leadership of Dr. Peter Rogol. Ed Shrager will continue his research into appropriate movies to be shown throughout the season, and to this end he requests that anyone with movie suggestions contact him at with the movie title and a couple of lines about why you recommend it. Suggestions for speakers can be directed to Peter at 

Each year Westville Synagogue tries to add simcha and community to our celebrations of the chagim by offering special congregational kiddushes. We’d like to continue this tradition but can’t without your help. Please consider making a donation to help defray the cost of our lovely kiddushes. Contributions sent to the synagogue office by September 7th 2018 would assist us in our planning and purchasing and would be most appreciated. Thank you!
