Our community joins together to pray on Shabbat, holidays, and at our special morning Minyans. Our sanctuary is a beautifully designed space that enhances our prayer experience. We gather together to connect with our Creator and with each other.

That connection includes a Kiddish after every Shabbat morning service and an Oneg Shabbat after every Friday night service. We also have regularly scheduled family Shabbat dinners at the synagogue.

At Congregation Kol Ami, we are able to come together to celebrate life in all its aspects. We celebrate cherished Jewish life-cycle events such as Bris and Baby Namings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and weddings. We offer compassion and caring for funerals and memorial services.


As a full service synagogue, one of the many services that Congregation Kol Ami offers its members is help in times of bereavement. Traditionally, the preparation of the dead for burial is considered one of the most sacred obligations any Jewish community can take upon itself. Kol Ami has established both a traditional burial society and a cemetery. These are operated under the guidelines and regulations established by the Cemetery Committee and the Board of the synagogue.

The burial society consists of members of the synagogue. They form a Chevra Kadisha, a Sacred Society, that serves bereaved families as they prepare for the burial of a late family member. These men and women serve without any remuneration and choose to remain anonymous. They perform these duties through a deep and abiding desire to serve our community, and as volunteers, only serve members of Congregation Kol Ami.
