Long Description:
The first Jewish congregation in Vermont, started by 18 people in 1885; the name means "Lovers of Justice." That congregation, affectionately known as "OZ,", now some 400 families, has a somewhat more modern (1958) facility a few blocks away.

This building, built in 1887, is the oldest known Jewish house of worship in Vermont, now occupied by the Ahavath Gerim congregation.
