WJC is a vibrant, welcoming spiritual home. We are dedicated to the advancement of Jewish ethics, culture and religion. We strive to enable participants to enrich their lives through Jewish worship, celebration, practice, study and fellowship. We are committed to maintaining our loving character by treating all people with care and respect; and to fostering our connection with the state of Israel and Jews around the world. We draw from all streams of Jewish practice. We welcome individuals of all gender identities, expressions, or sexual orientations.
Gallery Lev Shalem enriches the experience of all members and visitors to the synagogue by presenting juried exhibitions that celebrate the artistic efforts of our community and the region and express both secular and Judaic themes.
The Woodstock Jewish Congregation Family School provides a loving, welcoming, and enthusiastic environment in which Jewish children and their parents from all backgrounds learn to practice Judaism in meaningful and enlivening ways.
The workshop includes Carol's unique experiential exercises, the performance of short monologues and scenes, and processes designed to be fun, expansive and instructive about the art of acting...and living.
All WJC services are currently multi-access, allowing for both online and onsite participation. We invite you to follow along with our songs and prayers while attending services online and offer these online resources.
We care deeply for our corner of holy ground — 35 acres that includes welcoming trails through woods, across fields, and past wetlands and ponds.
We share the Jewish approach to living in balance and harmony with the earth. We do it through teaching and we do it through practice.
Our goal is to be an organization that fulfills the Torah teaching to be Shomrei Adamah: Guardians of the Earth. Our actions have been recognized by Hazon, the largest Jewish environmental organization in the United States.
