Contact information- [email protected] or (802) 257-1959

Mission Statement- Our mission is to provide a context and structure for people to be Jewish together in a rural environment, This community fosters Jewish pride and identity by participating together in religious, spiritual, educational social and cultural experiences. We welcome anyone interested in participating and learning.

Organization Description- 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.

Generally, we hold three Shabbat morning services and one Kabbalat Shabbat service each month

What is PJ Our Way?

 

 

PJ Our Way offers the gift of exceptional books with Jewish themes to kids ages 8½-11 – books that they choose themselves!
Monthly Choice

Every month, from the 1st – 10th, kids visit this website to choose a book from a selection of four high-quality titles that have been reviewed by a panel of PJ educators, parents, and kids. That's 12 free books a year! To make the choice easier, every title offered comes with a synopsis and author bios, ratings and reviews, and video trailers. Kids can also take polls and quizzes, participate in monthly interviews and challenges, and comment on blog posts.
Parent Input

On the Parent Blog, parents are invited to read about each book and find suggestions for family conversations. These blog posts give parents tools to help children make book choices that are appropriate for them.
A Safe Website

The PJ Our Way website is a safe place where kids can choose books, write reviews, and share ideas with others from around the country. All content on the website is moderated by PJ educators.
Design Team

Every fall, members of PJ Our Way may apply to be part of our national Design Team. Design Team members have early access to PJ Our Way books and create videos and reviews for the website. To become more involved with writing reviews and blogs, connect with us at [email protected]
