Welcome to Beth Jacob Synagogue!

For over a century we have been serving a diverse Jewish community in an atmosphere of mutual respect and acceptance.

Since 1913, Beth Jacob has provided a house of celebration, of learning, and of assembly to its members. We aim to educate youths and adults, and to promote Jewish continuity in central Vermont.

Community Seder - Saturday, April 4

Posted in

Rabbi Shana Margolin will lead our community seder on the second night of Passover. Join in retelling the story of the Exodus from Egypt. We will use the Reconstructionist Haggadah "A Night of Questions," supplemented by poetry and other readings. There will be lots of singing and delicious food.

The synagogue will provide matzah, haroset, seder plate foods, hard-boiled eggs, gefilte fish, matzah ball soup, wine, and grape juice. Participants bring pot luck dishes to share. For more information and to register, click here.
