Kol Ami

The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community

Welcome to Kol Ami

We are a growing and caring group of progressive Jews who believe in the continuity of Jewish spirituality in an egalitarian and interactive atmosphere that respects both the traditional and the modern. We meet in Arlington, and our members come from throughout Northern Virginia and the greater Washington, DC area.

Kol Ami is an affiliate of the Jewish Reconstructionist movement.

Celebrate our Jewish souls. Expand our Jewish minds. Reconstruct our Jewish hearts.

Upcoming Events

  • Fri26
    Kabbalat Shabbat led by Richard Ruth
    August 26, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

    We walk in two worlds. In one of our worlds, summer is ending, and the busier rhythms of fall and the school year approach; in our Jewish world, we approach the reflective month of Elul, an opportunity to prepare for the re-birth of the world on Rosh Hashanah.

    So, what better way to welcome in the new season than a pleasant summer Shabbat together at Kol Ami? We’ll talk, pray, learn, sing (some familiar melodies, maybe a couple new ones), offer blessings for the new year to come, and then enjoy a summery oneg (please bring something to share). The service will last an hour and will rejoice in the participation of Kol Amites of all ages. And oh yes – the Shabbat Queen will be bringing a special treat for all who are present. We’ll be in the Activity Room.

  • Fri9
    Kabbalat Shabbat led by Herb Cooper-Levy and Leslie Lesner
    September 9, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

    As we enter the month of Elul, we begin a fearless moral inventory, looking at the spaces in ourselves. We note that we’ve grown and healed, and we note where more growth and healing is needed. We’ll come together to welcome Shabbat and welcome that continued growth and healing.

    Please remember to bring a dessert to share. We’ll be in the Activity Room.
