Increase the Light

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

Thank you to the entire community for coming out to be part of this amazing experience, and particularly to our partners: Stowe Media Group, Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center (Community and Education Fund), the Helen Day Art Center, Stowe Performing Arts, and the Greater Stowe Interfaith Coalition, including St. John’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church, Stowe Community Church, Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stowe, and Bahá'ís of Stowe.

Rabbi David Fainsilber

Rabbi David and his family joined our community in 2013. He and his wife, Alison Link, have three sons, Adar, Yonah, and Hersh. Their family has brought a surge of energy and spirit to JCOGS. Our Jewish center greatly benefits from having a Rabbi who is an active, engaged member of the greater community. You may spot Rabbi David and his family snowshoeing the Notch, biking on the Lamoille Rail Trail, or schmoozing at the Farmers’ Market.

Rabbi David enhances JCOGS with his love of music, focus on family and youth, and pastoral presence. Along with weekly musical Shabbat services, he offers a regular Torah study and other adult-education classes and has been instrumental in the expansion of our Religious School and year-round family programs.

Rabbi David’s religious education spans Canada and the United States. He grew up in Montreal and earned an honors degree in religious studies from the University of British Columbia. He was ordained in 2014 at the pluralistic Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in Newton, Mass.
