The Rutland Jewish Center is an egalitarian congregation committed to fostering and fulfilling the spiritual, educational and social needs of our local Jewish community. We strive to provide a nurturing home for Jewish worship, culture, learning and identity-building, encouraging every member to participate in congregational activities.
We envision a membership that will fill our synagogue in worship, education, community service, celebration and joy. We strive to develop an involved, diverse membership, balancing our traditions, atmosphere and sense of community with an openness to change.
We are a warm and welcoming community—more accurately, a large family. Please come see us in person. We would enjoy meeting with you, worshiping with you, helping make your visit here a more pleasant one or your home here a more meaningful one.
Scheduled Friday evening services usually start at 8 pm, with monthly community Shabbat services and potluck suppers beginning at 6 pm. Scheduled Saturday morning services usually begin at 9:45. Service times for holidays vary depending on the calendar. Please check our calendar for dates, days and times of upcoming services.
The Center provides a full complement of educational opportunities including youth education, bar and bat mitzvah preparation, and adult education
