DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM… What is at stake in our lives is more than the fate of one generation. In this moment we, the living, are Israel. The tasks begun by the patriarchs and prophets, and carried out by countless Jews of the past, are now entrusted to us. No other group has superseded them. We are the only channel of Jewish tradition, those who must save Judaism from oblivion, those who must hand over the entire past to generations to come. We are either the last, the dying, Jews or else we are those who will give new life to our tradition. Rarely in our history has so much been dependent on one generation. We shall either forfeit to enrich the legacy of the ages. — Abraham Joshua Heschel

Since 1920, the Bethlehem Hebrew Congregation has served the religious, social, cultural and educational needs of New Hampshire’s North Country residents year ’round as well as seasonal residents and occasional visitors. Its historical building, dating back to the 1880s, is a landmark of American Jewish history, has been lovingly maintained and restored through the generosity of both residents and visitors.
