The Jewish Community of Greater Stowe is a vibrant center of Jewish life in northern Vermont.
Here, everyone is welcome. We are a fully inclusive, egalitarian, and independent congregation representing all branches of Judaism. Our community is made up of people of all ages and backgrounds, including interfaith, LGBTQ, and single-parent families. Some of us live here full-time, while others are part-timers or frequent visitors to the Stowe area. Under the leadership of Rabbi David Fainsilber, we come together to celebrate friendship and our shared Jewish heritage.
Since we first began gathering in each other’s homes for holiday potluck dinners in 1988, our mission has been “to create and sustain an environment which perpetuates and celebrates Jewish traditions, observances and sense of community.” JCOGS provides a warm and inclusive home for those seeking a communal and individual expression of spirituality. We offer compelling religious services and life-cycle events, children’s activities, cultural programming, educational classes, and numerous social and supportive opportunities. We invite you to join us!
