Who We Are
We are a diverse and inclusive Jewish community of full and part-time residents. We believe there are many routes to a meaningful experience with Judaism and this philosophy is described in our name- "Netivot Torah", which translates as "pathways to Torah".
 
Our synagogue is unaffiliated and member-led. Several times a year and on High Holidays, Rabbi Or Rose, Director of the Center for Global Judaism at Hebrew College and a leading voice on Jewish spirituality and social justice, joins us to conduct services and workshops.
 
We believe in equality at the Bimah, in Torah study where questions and discussions are welcome, in maintaining the tradition of Hebrew as part of our service, and in the prerogative of people to find personal relationship with Jewish heritage, culture, and spirituality.
 
We have an active calendar of cultural programs that explore Jewish identity, ideas, and our relationship to the modern world. We believe in the importance of practicing the tenets of Judaism through social action, community service, education, and interfaith engagement.
 
Our History
We began as a small congregtion in 1999, holding Shabbat services in a Methodist church in Malden Bridge. As our membership grew, we began the search for a 
permanent home. In April 2005 we purchased and renovated the former Chatham Town Hall, a turn-of-the-century former one-room school house located in the hamlet 
of Chatham Center. Over the years, as we attracted more worshippers, we began to outgrow our new home. With the generous support of our members and donors from 
the wider community, we were able to undertake an expansion project. In the spring of 2017 we completed the addition that more than doubled our space, ensuring that 
the blessings of community and spiritual practice will be accessible to all.
