About Keneseth Israel Congregation
Keneseth Israel’s roots go back to 1882; founded in Orthodoxy, we have evolved into a fully egalitarian Conservative shul. This evolution has allowed us to keep Judaism’s traditions intact while recognizing the needs of our membership as we look toward the 59th Jewish Century. We pride ourselves on being welcoming and spiritually fulfilling, as stated by our motto: “Big Enough to Enrich You; Small Enough to Know You.” Our vibrant Klei Kodesh partner with our dedicated member-volunteers to keep KI strong. The mission of KI is to provide a welcoming and engaging community that helps its members participate fully and joyfully in religious, educational, and social activities within a Conservative Jewish framework that is inclusive of all members. We currently have 234 member families, a 125-student preschool, and a community Hebrew school.
