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 welcomes all people and we aim to do that in every aspect of our community life. Diversity and inclusion are among Kol Ami’s core values. We love and welcome our neighbors who are: Jews by birth, Jews by choice, interfaith families, or just curious about Judaism; male, female, transgender, or non-binary; of all races and ethnic backgrounds, U.S. citizens, immigrants and visitors; single, married, divorced, separated, or partnered; straight, gay, lesbian, or bisexual; babies who are crawling (even if they cry), seniors, or any age in between; struggling with addictions, phobias, or a troubled past; homeowners, renters, or experiencing homelessness; fully-abled, disabled, or a person of differing abilities. We see God’s face in all.
Kol Ami is an affiliate of the Jewish Reconstructionist movement.
Celebrate our Jewish souls. Expand our Jewish minds. Reconstruct our Jewish hearts.
