Knesset Israel Welcomes You!

KI is an innovator in the rapidly changing world of American Judaism. We create authentic and meaningful points of connection and spiritual experiences for contemporary Jews, and cultivate a community empowered to make a positive difference in the world. Our flourishing congregation is inclusive and supportive, and accepts a wide range of beliefs and Jewish practice. People of all ages, religious backgrounds, genders and orientations find a supportive community here.

Our synagogue teems with life and activity, especially on Shabbat. We engage deeply with the Torah and its wisdom – intellectually, practically, ethically and spiritually. We actively cultivate community – members of the congregation teach in our Hebrew School, lead services, chant Torah, prepare students for bar/bat mitzvah, visit the sick, bury the dead and tend to those in need. And we are especially proud of how we encourage each other to learn and grow through Jewish living.

We hope you will stop by our inspiring services and exciting programs and give us the opportunity to get to know you.
