This is Kol Emeth and this is us: We chase our perfectly imperfect toddlers across the courtyard at kiddush. We love to lift our voices in song—the operatic and the off-key are equally welcome. We flirt with our fellow twentysomethings at Shabbat dinner, and we hold hands with our spouse of 50 years during services. We might jump for joy when the Torah comes out, or sit in quiet reflection during contemplative minyan. We are encountering and exploring Judaism for the first time, and we are steeped in decades of experience that we are eager to share. We are babies and bubbes and every human experience in between. We can’t wait to meet you.
New to Kol Emeth?
Please join us for services or an event! We get it—it’s hard to be a stranger in a strange land (or a new shul). One of the best ways to experience Kol Emeth and connect with the community is to check out our Shabbat morning services, which begin at 9:15am every Saturday. Pro tip: Some of us may arrive…well, not so early. We’ll be happy to see you whenever you get here.
Got questions? Please fill out our First-Time Visitors Form, or check out our FAQ. If you’d like, we’d be happy to connect you with an actual Kol Emeth human who can give you the scoop on our services, and introduce you to other folks. Whatever your level of Jewish experience or engagement, we’d love to be part of your journey.
