Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center

Your Jewish home on the Island

The Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center is the home of Jewish spiritual, cultural, intellectual, and artistic life on Martha’s Vineyard.

We are a welcoming and progressive Jewish congregation supporting one another as we learn, question and grow in the richness of Jewish tradition, Torah and Mitzvot.  We strive to apply values of justice, as described by the Prophets, to local and global issues alike.

We seek to promote Jewish and universal values of compassion and human dignity for all.

Letter from the Rabbi

Dear Friends, I wanted to share with you a few words of Torah. But first, I wanted to invite you to join us for special prayers to free the hostages tonight at our Shabbat service at 5:30. We will be saying traditional prayers for the freeing of hostages, reading the names of those held captive, and studying a traditional text that teaches the utmost importance of the mitzvah of working to free those held captive.
Rabbi Caryn Broitman, MVHC
