The Rutland Jewish Center is an inclusive community, welcoming all who seek to learn and experience Jewish wisdom and traditions. Our community members come from a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds and affiliations. We celebrate diversity as a core value. We offer meaningful Shabbat and holiday services in our historic downtown building as well as in beautiful outdoor locations. We provide regular educational programs for beginning and more advanced learners and a host of cultural programs throughout the year.


Celebrating Shabbat:  We hold a Shabbat service every week of the year, alternating Fridays and Saturdays. Friday night services, including a Dairy Potluck Shabbat Dinner are held on the first, third and fifth Friday of each month at 6:30pm. Depending on the season, the dinner may precede or follow the service. Please check our calendar for details. 

Saturday morning services are held at 10AM on the second and fourth Saturday of 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]
