Organization Description -Israel Congregation of Manchester is an independent congregation which is the home for diverse Jewish expressions. Our doors are open to people of all backgrounds and faiths. We embrace interfaith couples as full members of our congregation. We welcome you to become an integral part of our caring and vibrant community. Our services are uplifting and filled with music, led by our creative and dynamic spiritual leader, Cantor Scott Buckner. Torah study at ICM becomes an enriching spiritual exercise through the principles of Mussar, a Jewish spiritual practice that gives concrete instructions on how to live a meaningful and ethical life. At ICM you will grow, connect and engage in a deep and relevant Jewish experience. Our communal Shabbat dinners are a place to have fun, unwind and make new friends or catch up with old friends. It’s like having a second family. Make us your second home.

We are a friendly place for worship and community.
