Services Overview

 We are a joint Conservative and Reform Congregation which offers weekly Friday evening and Saturday morning services as well as High Holiday and Holiday services in both traditions.

Our Friday night services are usually Reform Services and Shabbat mornings will usually be Traditional with Reform services running concurrently every other week. Our goal is to provide a variety of prayer opportunities to meet the diverse spiritual needs of our members. We have an Oneg/Kiddush after Services and everyone who attends is welcome to join us to Nosh and Schmooze. Click on one of the following to learn more about our service schedules.

Shabbat Sheni
On the second Shabbat morning each month between High Holidays and Shavu'ot we offer a Tot Shabbat Service at 11:00 am.

Here at Kol Ami, we have a tradition of sharing Shabbat dinner once a month after our Erev Shabbat service. This lovely community dinner, which we call “Dinner-at-the-Shul,” is an opportunity to step away from the busy workweek, greet the Sabbath, and enjoy a meal with friends and family.

While there is no charge, our monthly dinners are made possible by the charitable donations from our community. Please help us continue this series by donating to our "Dinner-at-the-Shul" fund. You may also sponsor a dinner for $360. RSVP, Donate, and Sponsor a Dinner.  

Shabbatinis & Shir Shabbat
Shir Shabbat focuses on joyous singing, with melodies by the greats, including Shlomo Carlebach. We will sing mostly in Hebrew (Siddurs will have full translations and transliterations). Services are preceded by a social hour called Shabbatinis. Both soft and hard drinks are available as well as some snacks. After services, join us for a dairy-vegetarian potluck.

More Information
