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 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.
