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.

2016/5777 High Holy Days

We look forward to worshiping with you on the High Holy Days in 2016/5777. Kol Ami will hold our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington. Services will be led by Rabbi Gilah Langner and co-led by Kol Ami members. Please visit our events page for the schedule.

Kol Ami does not sell tickets, we accept donations. We welcome visitors to all our activities.

Members do not need to make an additional donation for the High Holy Days. Members who plan to attend the Break Fast are asked to help defray the cost of that.

To register, go here.

    Kabbalat Shabbat led by Herb Cooper-Levy
    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 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. We’ll be in the Activity Room.

    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.
