Kol Ami is a small and friendly Reconstructing Judaism community; the only one in this area. We are lay-lead and rent our space, allowing us to have minimal over-head costs and low annual membership fees. In this way we can provide a warm Jewish atmosphere while encouraging a participation level that is comfortable for each of our members.
To our members and friends: after consultation with the Reconstructing Judaism leadership and discussion of the Kol Ami Board of Directors we have decided not to congregate while we are faced with our current health crisis. We are reviewing the situation daily and we will let you know when we feel we can be together again without putting anyone at undo risk. While we wait, please take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

Join us for an online launch event of a new initiative called Shutafut.
Shutafut is an initiative that provides a simple way for Reconstructionist communities to partner with progressive, creative Israeli organizations.
There will be speakers from three inspiring Israeli organizations:
- Hiddush – Hiddush advocates for religious freedom and pluralism in Israel. Through education, research, and public advocacy, Hiddush seeks to change the status quo of a monopoly on religious practice and expression in the State of Israel.
- Hinam – Center for Social Tolerance – Hinam Center helps people in the many diverse sectors and cultures that exist in Israeli society get to know each other and work together towards a shared society of mutual respect.
- Women Wage Peace – WWP is a grassroots movement with tens of thousands of members from the left, center and right of the political spectrum, Jews and Arabs, religious and secular, united in the demand for a mutually binding non-violent agreement between Israelis and Palestinian, involving women in the process (in the spirit of UN Resolution 1325).
