We Welcome You!
Rabbi Jason Fenster
It is with immense joy, pride, and anticipation that we share that Rabbi Jason Fenster will become the next Senior Rabbi of Congregation Kol Ami, effective July 1, 2023. Rabbi Fenster’s soulful way of being, genuine spirit, and infectious enthusiasm, combined with his intelligence, open-mindedness, and forward thinking, made a deep and overwhelming impression on the Senior Rabbi Search Committee. In short, and as you will soon learn, Rabbi Fenster is a scholar and a mensch, an inspiring spiritual leader and an engaging educator, a passionate speaker and a compassionate listener. Our community undoubtedly will thrive under his leadership and care. . . .

Whatever Your Jewish You Will Find It Here
We at Congregation Kol Ami are committed to being an open tent – a place that welcomes all who wish to be part of Jewish community – because we believe that our community is not whole unless everyone experiences a sense of belonging. We encourage participation from all who seek a connection to Jewish life and who want to be part of our sacred community, regardless of religious background, race, ethnicity, gender, ableness, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity
Learn more about us, including our activities, our Religious School and Early Childhood Program, and become part of our community.
Kol Ami is a caring community. We celebrate and acknowledge the happy occasions in the lives of our
members and offer support during times of sadness, illness and stress. Please contact the Temple office or any of our clergy if you or someone you know is in need of the support of our congregation. We also love to hear good news; let us know of a happy event occurring in your family so we can include it in This Week At Kol Ami!
