Welcome to Prospective Members

Shalom Friends!

Thank you for your interest in Kesher Israel Congregation.  Kesher Israel is a warm, diverse, progressive Conservative congregation. We pride ourselves on our commitment to building a nurturing and supportive Jewish community in which our members come together to celebrate Jewish holidays through the seasons, to mark life-cycle events, to work for Tikkun Olam (service projects to “repair the world”), to deepen our Jewish spirituality, and to socialize with each other.

From our young parents’ playgroup (“Chaverim”) to our Prime Time social group, Kesher Israel truly has something for everyone.  We have a strong commitment to Jewish education with a religious school that offers a full range of programs and learning opportunities. Kesher Israel also offers an outstanding and highly regarded Preschool, a vibrant Community Hebrew High School, stimulating adult education classes, an active Sisterhood and Men’s Club, and numerous holiday programs and social events for all ages, year round.

We strive to maintain an atmosphere in the congregation where all feel welcome and part of the community.  Approximately twenty percent of our membership consists of interfaith families. We honor decisions that families have made to raise their children as Jews, even when one parent is from a different faith tradition. We welcome both Jewish and these partners to participate in our communal, social and spiritual life.

We invite you to any of our upcoming services, programs or events.  Please go to our website (www.kesher-israel.org – be sure to include the dash) for the most up-to-date information about events.  If you let us know of your attendance in advance, we are happy to arrange for you to be personally hosted by a congregant.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kesher Israel.  We hope that you will choose to make your family part of our community.  Please feel free to email us or call the office with any questions.

 

B’Shalom, In Peace,

Melissa Scrimo & Marilyn Rothberg
