Giving

The Woodstock Area Jewish Community has always been supported entirely by voluntary gifts. We have no dues. There is no fee or tuition for our Hebrew School.

How is this possible?

It is though the generosity of our many local and out-of-state congregants. What we have built together is nothing short of remarkable: a beautiful sanctuary, a Hebrew School with over 40 children, a vibrant welcoming community that continues to grow.

As we approach our new year, we reflect on how blessed we are to have a hard-working group of volunteers to steer our ship.  To keep us moving forward, to expand and enrich Jewish life in our community and central rural Vermont, requires the support of all our members.

We continue to depend on one another to sustain our congregation. Please choose your preferred method of giving to continue our educational and spiritual mission.
