Meet US

Kol Hadash “Does Jewish Differently” by:

  • Celebrating Jewish life through human knowledge, power and responsibility. 
  • Believing that human power can improve the world, and saying, singing and living what we believe. 
  • Welcoming all individuals and families, firmly believing that everyone should celebrate who they are. 
 

 

Our Beliefs

We believe that human beings have the intelligence and wisdom to determine the purpose and course of their lives, free of supernatural guidance.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Our Rabbis

Our rabbis help us keep what is meaningful from our Jewish inheritance while being open to new ways of expressing Jewish connections that reflect our values. Meet Rabbi Adam Chalom and Rabbi Emeritus Daniel Friedman.
