Ohavi Zedek (Hebrew for "Lovers of Justice") is a Conservative synagogue in Burlington, Vermont.


Founded in 1885, it is the oldest congregation in Vermont.[1] The synagogue's original building, a brick Gothic Revival structure erected in 1885 (Old Ohavi Zedek Synagogue), is among the oldest synagogue buildings still standing in the United States.[2] The building, at the corner Archibald and Hyde Streets in Burlington, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is now occupied by Congregation Ahavath Gerim.[3]

In 1952 the congregation moved to its present home on North Prospect Street.
