We are a Jewish community of full and part-time residents from diverse Jewish backgrounds and perspectives. Together, we've created an inclusive, unaffiliated congregation where all can participate equally in Jewish rituals, learning, community and social action. As a community, we carry on the tradition of simplicity and modesty in keeping with rural synagogues of the past.Our synagogue is an historic building in the hamlet of Chatham Center, but we also make use of the wider community, scheduling events at local cultural venues.
We believe in equality at the Bimah, in Torah study where questions and discussion are welcome, in maintaining the tradition of Hebrew as part of our service, and in the prerogative of people to find a personal relationship with Jewish heritage, culture, and spirituality.
