Here in the Outer Banks, we are about 2 hours away from the nearest mainstream Judaic community in the Tidewater area of Virginia. In our remote location, we want to serve the needs of Jewish people who reside in, visit, or vacation in the Outer Banks. We know we need to offer a flexible program in which Jewish people of different backgrounds will feel comfortable.

Flexibility means that the JCOB is unaffiliated but uses Reform prayer books for Shabbat and High Holiday services.  We ​welcome​ ​residents, second home-owners, or vacationers​ to join us at our ​monthly ​services​ or any of our other programs and holiday celebrations​. Services are typically held at the UUCOB Meetinghouse​ in Kitty Hawk​​ (and on Zoom​).

We look forward to meeting you.
