About Us

Beth Jacob Synagogue has welcomed Jews in central Vermont for more than a century. Today more than 95 families from all over our region are members. We are an inclusive congregation: we welcome young, old, newcomers, oldtimers, singles, families, and LGBTQ individuals. We are unaffiliated with any formal Jewish movement; our community provides support for a full range of Jewish life cycle events, religious education, and cultural experiences. Our community includes people who are observant and those who are just rediscovering their Jewish heritage. We employ a part-time religious school principal and programing director. We have several rabbis who are members of our congregation but do not have a rabbi on staff. Religious services are led by knowledgeable members of the community. We are proud of our new, light-filled building in a residential neighborhood in Montpelier.
