Welcome To Westchester

              And welcome to Congregation Kol Ami

New To The Area?

At Congregation Kol Ami we are proud to have members from all over the country and the world. However, the majority of the congregants at our Reform Jewish synagogue reside here in Westchester, NY. If you are new to the area, we welcome you to get to know more about us and about our local neighborhood.

Looking for a synagogue during a global pandemic isn’t easy! How can you check out the building, hear the beautiful music on Shabbat, learn about Early Childhood Programs, Religious School, or B’nai Mitzvah tudoring? We have the answers!
