A Message from Rabbi Micah Streiffer 


Kol Ami is Hebrew for "Voice of My People." This is a community where everyone's voice matters. A vibrant and inclusive congregation, we strive to blend the traditional and the contemporary in everything we do.

At Kol Ami, Judaism is accessible, meaningful, and down-to-earth. We welcome interfaith families, same-sex couples, those who were born Jewish or who found Judaism as adults, and anyone who is interested in exploring Jewish life. Please join us for our musical Shabbat services, check out one of our many educational programs, or visit our unique Shabbat morning school for kids.

We look forward to sharing our family with your family!
