Organization Description - Israel Congregation of Manchester (ICM) is an independent, unaffiliated congregation that is the spiritual, cultural, and social home for diverse Jewish expressions in southwestern Vermont and beyond. Our doors are open to people from all Jewish backgrounds, and we embrace interfaith couples as full members of our congregation. Our services are uplifting and filled with music, led by our creative and dynamic spiritual leader, Cantor Scott Buckner. Torah study becomes an enriching experience through the principles of Mussar, a Jewish spiritual practice that engages congregants as they explore meaningful, ethical and actionable paths in life. Our weekly communal Shabbat dinners, preceded by a festive social hour, are a place to have fun and unwind, whether by catching up with old friends or by making new connections. We offer a dynamic Hebrew school and creative, engaging family education programming. Find a welcoming and inclusive home at ICM.
“Pre-neg” at 5:45pm every Friday with worship at 6:30pm, followed by a potluck dinner. Torah study is held each Shabbat morning at 9:00am.
