WELCOME TO KOL AMI!

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.

We associate with Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Philadelphia.


TO OUR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS: AFTER CONSULTATION WITH THE RECONSTRUCTING JUDAISM LEADERSHIP AND DISCUSSION OF THE KOL AMI BOARD 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 RISK. WHILE WE WAIT PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES AND YOUR LOVED ONES. 


Kol Ami invites you to our first virtual, pre-Shabbat “Teatime Talk” to be held each Friday at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom beginning April 3rd.  In light of the start of Pesach (Wednesday night, April 8th), our topic for discussion will be “Living through your own exodus from Mitzrayim in 2020”.  After a brief introduction, we will invite participants to share their own personal thoughts about what they are learning about the meaning of living and coming through a “narrow place” (the literal meaning for MItzrayim, the name for Egypt), as well as sharing ways that participants plan to honor, celebrate and create a sense of “family” during their sedarim during a time when most everyone is and should be in physical isolation except immediate household family.

Register in advance for this “Teatime Talk” on Friday at 5:30 p.m.
