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.

    Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

    We’ll be in the Chapel. Please bring a dairy vegetarian dish to share.

    After services there will be a community discussion of avenues for non-Jewish members of Kol Ami to participate in ritual life. Kol Ami desires to be inclusive and participatory, in keeping with the Reconstructionist vision of an evolving Jewish community where the past has a vote, not a veto. This discussion will follow the Oneg from approximately 12:30 to 2 pm. Facilitated by Rabbi Gilah, we’ll talk about the ways that issues of Jewish identity have evolved, and how those values are reflected in the participation of those not born Jewish. We’ll ask what practices we’re comfortable with, and affirm them going forward.
