Welcome to the Hebrew Congregation of Chautauqua, where we celebrate and practice the Jewish faith amidst the beautiful and welcoming community of the Chautauqua Institution.  Since 1960, we have been a presence on the grounds of Chautauqua, providing a place for Jewish worship, education, and socialization during the summer season.  

Our prayer books are written in Hebrew with English transliteration and translation.  Services are conducted by a Rabbi and Cantor or Cantorial Soloist.  We serve the growing Jewish presence at Chautauqua with Friday evening services, informal Friday evening's Pizza potlocks, Saturday morning services, Sunday evening lectures, Tuesday afternoon social hours, and Shabbat dinners. 

All Chautauquans are welcome to attend our services and programs. 

Please contact us to celebrate a special event. Stay up-to-date with our activities on our Facebook page.
