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.

Explore the menus above to learn more about us.  Be sure to check out the "upcoming events" on the left where you can click for more detailed information on upcoming programs and services.

High Holidays in Our New Space!

Join us for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur in our newly constructed space! Congregation members Sara Lisniansky, Rabbi Tobie Weisman, and Rabbi Shana Margolin will jointly lead our High Holiday services again this year, starting with the evening service on Erev Rosh Hashana on Sunday, September 13. The full schedule is here. We will have a variety of services, ranging from traditional to creative to humanistic. There are activities for children and an outdoor tashlich service on the Winooski River. Sample some or all of them!

Best of all, if you end up with a seat in the "back room" you will now be able to see and hear everything! The new space is terrific, so be sure to come see it.

Building Fund Approaches Goal!

We have almost reached our goal of $775,000 to complete the reconstruction of our building!
donating today you will help ensure that we don't have to borrow funds to ensure that a Jewish community continues to flourish in Central Vermont.
