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.

Brattleboro Area Jewish Community…Welcome home.

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