Mission Statement- Ohavi Zedek's vision is to be a vibrant Jewish community embracing our traditions while actively participating in our changing Jewish world.
Organization Description- Vermont's oldest and largest Jewish congregation, Ohavi Zedek Synagogue (or OZ) was founded in 1885 by Jewish immigrants from Lithuania. Today we are a community of about 375 families. Our vibrant, egalitarian and inclusive congregation is committed to embracing tradition while actively participating in our changing Jewish world. Our membership consists of individuals and families from every facet of the liberal Jewish religious world, from Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist and Renewal backgrounds. We are a kehilla, a sacred community, where everyone is welcome, including intermarried and LGBTQ families. Whether your interest in Judaism is religious, social, educational, or simply about Tikkun Olam you will find a home at OZ. We embrace this diversity as our greatest strength.
We hold Kabbalat Shabbat Fridays at 6PM, Shabbat Morning Saturdays at 9AM, Evening Minyan Sunday - Thursday at 7PM, and Sunday Morning Minyan at 9AM
