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.

Services alternate on a monthly schedule 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 offerings.

Shabbat Sheni

On the second Shabbat morning each month we offer a Tot Shabbat Service at 11:00 a.m.

Dinner-at-the-Shul

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. There is no charge for this dinner, prepared by our Volunteers, but donations are appreciated. Your presence and help is always welcome. Please RSVP so we know how much food to prepare!  Click here for more information.

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

Those interested in learning more about our Services are welcome to attend Shabbat evening and morning services. Please let us know you will be joining us or introduce yourself when you arrive so we can be sure to extend  to you some Kol Ami hospitality.

If you have a group of five or more people who wish to visit a service or if you would like to arrange a tour of the Synagogue, please email your request to info@conkolami.org

Exalted and hallowed be God's great name
in the world which God created, according to plan.
May God's majesty be revealed in the days of our lifetime
and the life of all Israel -- speedily, imminently, to which we say Amen.

Blessed be God's great name to all eternity.

Blessed, praised, honored, exalted, extolled, glorified, adored, and lauded
be the name of the Holy Blessed One, beyond all earthly words and songs of blessing,
praise, and comfort. To which we say Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us and all Israel,
to which we say Amen.

May the One who creates harmony on high, bring peace to us and to all Israel.
To which we say Amen.
