Anti-Racism Book Group Continues

Join us! Our anti-racism book group will begin its second book in October.  We will be reading Isabel Wilkerson's Caste:
The Origins of our Discontents. It is a powerful examination of how our racial hierarchy was constructed and continues to reproduce itself.  

We will divide the book (approx. 370 of text) into three sections(1 ½ hours each) and meet at 7 pm every other week: 
  • Monday, Oct. 5
  • Tuesday, Oct. 19
  • Monday, Nov. 2. 

If you have questions contact Carol Heffer or David Shiman.


Register with Stacie, our temple administrator by October 1st.

Jewish Communities of Vermont (JCVT) Executive Director (ED)
Scheduled Start: Dec 1st
The office can be relocated to elsewhere in Vermont.

As its founding Director retires, Jewish Communities of Vermont is recruiting an Executive Director to work with our Board of Directors to achieve the vision and strategies of the organization. JCVT is a non-denominational organization that seeks to strengthen existing Jewish organizations in Vermont and to encourage new outlets for Jewish expression, affiliation, education, communication, and practice for all Jewish Vermonters by facilitating connection and innovation.

The ideal candidate has the stamina and demonstrated capabilities to understand and implement what is possible, while building community among communities. The willingness to take risks to achieve desired outcomes and the ability to expand resources to achieve the organization's vision should be important characteristics of the person selected. For full position description, and more information, or to apply contact ed@jcvt.org.

Mission Statement
We are a diverse, egalitarian, and inclusive community of Jews and interfaith families.  We joyfully embrace Judaism as a way of life through prayer, music, social action, celebrating Jewish holidays, lifelong learning, and life cycle events.  Through these activities, we seek to promote spiritual growth, moral values, and the social welfare of our community.
Vision Statement
Temple Sinai strives to be a joyful, energetic, accepting, innovative, caring, and accessible faith community.  We choose to practice and teach Jewish traditions in our community, so that Jews and Judaism will continue to flourish, both in Vermont and in an ever-changing world.  We believe that support for a safe and prosperous State of Israel is an important part of our Jewish identity.
