Welcome to Prospective Members

Looking for your Community? Consider Kesher Israel!

Thank you for your interest in Kesher Israel Congregation.  We are more than just a synagogue, we’re a dynamic, bustling, warm and welcoming Jewish community with so much to share.  Connection (“Kesher” in Hebrew) is our first name, and it is apt.  We are the home of your future closest friends, the village that will help raise your children, your source of activities and deeper learning after the kids have gone,  your support in times of need, the place where you’ll mark the important moments in your life, from a baby’s bris and/or naming ceremony, to helping you through mourning losses of all kinds, and even creating new ceremonies to mark occasions the sages never could’ve imagined.  We’re your connection/kesher to all things Jewish—from Torah learning to Jewish comedy, musical band to mutual cooking, weaving to working to fix what’s broken in the world, and most of all, celebrating together! 

Our diverse membership includes people who were raised traditionally observant, to not observant at all, new Jews, single Jews, married Jews, LGBTQIAA Jews, straight Jews, just-culturally-Jewish Jews to deeply spiritual Jews.  Kesher Israel is where your personal life journey and Jewish connection meet in beautiful, meaningful ways that can be powerfully life-enriching.

To find out more, give us a call at 610-696-7210, contact us through this website, or come to an upcoming service or event.  Let us know how we can help you find your Kesher-connection.

L’Shalom, To Peace,
