We are a Reform congregation located in Brattleboro, Vermont. In Hebrew, “Shir Heharim” means Song of the Mountains, symbolic of our commitment to practice and celebrate Judaism with creativity.
Who are we? We are newly-weds and empty-nesters, toddlers and elders, doubters and the devout. We are teachers and students. We are the non-Jewish partners and the newcomers to Judaism; we’re those revisiting the comfort of our childhood rituals and those searching for something that might have been missing since then.
We welcome our guests and celebrate our simchas, we visit our sick and we mourn with our bereaved, we stand with the State of Israel and we care for our planet. We are more than a synagogue, we’re a community.
Brattleboro Area Jewish Community…
Do not separate yourself
from the community…
—Hillel, Jewish sage,
BAJC is a place for us all to call home and to celebrate the joys of Jewish life together with our families and friends.
If you value having a synagogue and congregation available in moments of joy and in times of need, please consider supporting BAJC with your membership. We have adopted a “no dues” policy that asks people to give from their hearts to support our congregation, so we can provide spiritual leadership and a Jewish home, Shabbat and holiday services, Hebrew School, cultural events, social events, holiday observances, Yizkor services, a cemetery, a monthly newsletter, other messages, a website, workshops, lectures and more!
At BAJC, everyone contributes to the synagogue’s vitality. We ask members to contribute what they can, no questions asked! To find out more about how you can become a part of our community, please contact us at 802-257-1959 or email email@example.com, or click on our Membership Information form and pledge form, below.
