What we're about
We are a welcoming, inclusive Jewish congregation committed to tradition and the search for contemporary meaning. Joining Kol Ami means becoming part of a participatory organization. That means we work together to shape Shabbat and High Holiday services, education, and holiday celebrations. Our services are spirited and engaging, and our holiday observances respect tradition while openly confronting the reality of being Jews in the 21st century. As Reconstructionists we believe that it is the responsibility of each generation of Jews to reevaluate, refocus and reformulate our traditions when necessary, so they will remain viable in today's world. By doing so, we reaffirm our commitment to Judaism and our sense of belonging to the Jewish people ... and we reshape the spiritual and cultural legacy we leave to future generations. Reconstructionism is both respectful of traditional Jewish practice and open to new interpretations and forms of religious expression.
