Kol Ha’Emek, the Upper Valley Jewish Community (UVJC) is a welcoming, egalitarian congregation providing Jewish spiritual, educational, social, and cultural opportunities to the Upper Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. Drawing our membership from a radius of sixty miles and beyond, we are a varied and diverse community.
We are located at the Roth Center for Jewish Life at 5 Occom Ridge in Hanover, New Hampshire, on the Dartmouth campus. Although we are an independent organization, we share a building with Dartmouth Hillel, an organization with which whom we work closely and share worship and some programming. While Dartmouth Hillel serves students, the Upper Valley Jewish Community serves community members. During the COVID epidemic, the Roth Center remains closed, but this does not mean that our community is not extremely active! Check out the Weekly Update on the Home page to get a sense of the many ways to become involved.
The UVJC offers religious services on Shabbat and holidays, and we service all life cycle celebrations, from the bar mitzvah to the loss of a loved one. We also have a religious school that meets twice weekly, as well as many educational opportunities and community events for Jews of all ages.
