Door County Jews have a small, enthusiastic congregation

While there is no synagogue in Door County, there is a very active and enthusiastic Jewish community.  Members of the congregation calling itself “From Generation to Generation” practice Reform Judaism and conduct Sabbath services in English. They're led by a lay leader. With about 20 worshippers per service from winter to spring to just over 30 people with summer visitors, it's not practical to have a full-time or part-time rabbi or to maintain a synagogue.   Patricia Podgers, who serves multiple roles with the congregation, says they make up for size with enthusiasm for Shabbat and Hanukkah gatherings.

 


While their congregation is small, Podgers says it's growing.  So it's possible future sabbaths could be held in an area community building.
