Caring Community

Kehilla members are there for each other in times of simcha (joy) and tsuris (trouble), to celebrate together and, when necessary, to mourn together.

Educating Our Children

Kehilla School, open only to member children, helps our families raise the next generation of progressive, compassionate leaders.

Meaningful Life-long Learning

Kehilla’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah program is renown for its innovative, authentic approach to this ancient process of learning and growth, and is only open to members and their children.

Open-hearted Diversity

Kehilla is an open-hearted community of diverse beliefs, backgrounds, and interests. We warmly welcome you!


Kehilla has made such a profound and deep impact on my life. I love the diversity of the people, the warmth of their care, and their passion for a sustainable planet. I am happy to be walking my Jewish path with this group and look forward to raising my daughter among the community. ”

At Kehilla, I have all the room I need to shape my Jewish past into a meaningful Jewish present, which now also embraces my family. And, oy, does Kehilla have heart! ”

— Esther E.


We are members of Kehilla because it is a warm and welcoming community. We came for Hebrew school but now that the kids have grown we have found lifelong friends and a spiritual home. ”
