Worship

We are one of the oldest synagogues in New Hampshire, founded in 1907. Begun as an Orthodox community, we affiliated with the Reform movement after World War II. As Concord’s only synagogue, we are an eclectic blend of Jewish worship practices, as our members represent the full spectrum of Jewish diversity.

Our ancestors Abraham and Sarah were renowned for their tent – a tent open on all sides. It was by welcoming all who came to them that their faith and family grew. And so it is at TBJ. At our heart are warmth and a welcoming spirit to all who enter our doors. Whether you are Jewish by birth or by choice, married/partnered with someone who is Jewish, raising Jewish children, searching, or just curious, know that you are always welcome at TBJ. We hope you’ll find a home with us as we strive to engage with Torah and the legacy of Jewish learning so that our ancient traditions resonate in our lives and in our world today.

A special word to parents joining us for worship: Babies and toddlers are welcome to remain in the sanctuary when gurgling, whispering, or making other non-disruptive noises. Children are wel­come to play quietly, draw, or color. Bags of toys hang in our coatroom and you are welcome to take them to your seat. We do ask that you please refrain from using electronics.

Shabbat services are held every Friday night beginning at 7:00 pm and most all Saturday mornings beginning at 9:30 am. (During the summer, some weeks we hold only Friday night services, particularly if our clergy are away.) Check the calendar for details.
