.We celebrate community and the bonds that bring us together.

JCOGS is truly a community center. Whether in one another’s home or over a potluck in our beautiful building in Stowe, we love to come together to enjoy one another’s company. Our calendar is packed with a myriad of year-round events, from guest speakers to outdoor adventures to Jewish movie nights.

Music is a vital component of every service at JCOGS, and a focal point of our year-round programming. We host community-wide musical events throughout the year in our beautiful building, built with acoustics in mind. We’re so fortunate to have been gifted an heirloom Mason & Hamlin baby grand piano, which we’ve enjoyed during enhanced services and concerts. Recent events have included: “Old Country” fiddlers, Klezmer concerts, Gregorian choirs, and more.

We welcome authors, professors, and experts in their fields to present talks, workshops, and classes that are relevant to our members and guests at every stage of life. We celebrate the holidays with services, community dinners, and parties. And sometimes we just get together to play: whether it’s clowning around during our Purim celebration, welcoming summer at our annual barbecue, or enjoying the “sweets” of the season at our July ice-cream social.

We are a Beit Kenesset, A Home for Gathering, togetherness and, of course, schmoozing. And we invite you to join us!
