Havurah of Addison County is an inclusive, non-denominational Jewish community serving Vermont towns between Burlington and Rutland including Middlebury, Addison, Waltham, Bristol, Cornwall, Brandon, Bridport, and beyond.
We are unaffiliated and welcome a broad range of traditions. Because our community comprises a rich diversity of Jewish backgrounds and education, we are a volunteer-driven and lay-led congregation seeking to create unique Jewish experiences.
Our regular Shabbat and holiday services are conducted by Havurah members or, once monthly, by the Hebrew School faculty and students. Each year we also co-sponsor High Holy Day Services with Middlebury College.
Our home is Havurah House, located at 56 North Pleasant Street (Route 7) in Middlebury. The house was generously donated to Havurah by the Lazarus family, and renovated with funds raised from the membership. It is now a fully functioning house of prayer, study, and celebration, with classroom space to serve our rapidly growing Hebrew School, a sanctuary, and a social hall, which accommodates our larger events.
