The Jewish Community of Greater Stowe (JCOGS) is a growing unaffiliated congregation embracing all denominations of Jewry.
Conceived in 1988, our mission is "to create and sustain an environment which perpetuates and celebrates Jewish traditions, observances and sense of community."
The Bulletin is our new bi-monthly newsletter!
Join our religious leader David Fainsilber as he leads us into the sweet, restoring presence of Shabbat. Musical, dynamic and participatory, these services will revive your neshama yeteira, that extra soul that we receive every Shabbat. If you are planning on coming, invite a friend! The more neshama, the better.
