(Beth Jacob) in New Hampshire's capital city of Concord, is a welcoming and inclusive community that stands on the pillars of study, worship and acts of loving kindness.We are one of the oldest synagogues in New Hampshire, founded in 1907. Begun as an Orthodox synagogue, we affiliated with the Reform movement just 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. At our heart, however, 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 welcome at TBJ. We hope you’ll find a home with us.
L’shalom (with peace),
Rabbi Robin Nafshi

Voted best band runner-up (and top folk band) in the 2011 Long Island Press readers’ poll, Gathering Time is like a high-energy Peter, Paul & Mary or a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with various parts of The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, the Eagles and America mixed in; a head-turning folk-rock harmony trio described as “getting a whole beehivefull of buzz” on the Northeast folk scene. John Platt has written that they are “among the finest performers in the New York metropolitan area, whatever the size of the venue, from a house concert to an outdoor festival,” with “harmonies that can charm the birds out of the trees, strong original songs, and a savvy repertoire of cover songs, ranging from traditional folk to classic rock. They appeal to audiences of all ages.” The concert will be accompanied by a silent auction. Tickets will go on sale at TBJ in March ($20/single, $35/couple, and $50/family).
