Community as Cornerstone

Our name means “a new community”.  While deeply connected to the historical experiences of the Jewish people, we find a profound sense of belonging in our contemporary communities as well.  This connection often leads to increased ritual observance and experimentation with the ritual rhythms of Jewish life.

 

Spiritual Seeking

Reconstructionists hold diverse ideas about   G-d, but we share an emphasis on godliness—those hopes, beliefs and values within us that impel us to work for a better world.  Kehillah Chadashah strives to create a spiritual atmosphere and one where we as a community take deliberate steps to improve our congregational community, local community and the larger world community.

 

Mission
 
It is the mission of Kehillah Chadashah to create  a kehillah (community) to worship and to learn where members have a sense of ownership and inclusivity, connecting and including our youth, family, friends and Israel.
