When a friend of mine took me to a Kol Hadash Shabbat service MANY years ago, I knew it was for me. Since I am an ignostic (it doesn't matter if there is a God or not as long as we live an ethical life), I knew this was the place for me. It feels good not to say what I don't believe in the services. The people in Kol Hadash are very friendly and I felt welcomed immediately. We have Havurah (friends) groups in various areas, discussion groups, bagel brunches with fascinating speakers, and other activities. I hope you come to some of our Shabbat services or other programs and see if Kol Hadash is right for you.

Whenever I am asked about Kol Hadash, I think of three words: humanism, learning, and friendship. At Kol Hadash, we observe Shabbat and celebrate Jewish holidays and rituals in a humanistic/non-theistic setting. Our services are led by members of the community. Learning comes to mind because at Kol Hadash, we continuously learn from guest speakers on a wide variety of topics at our monthly bagel brunches, from video lectures on Jewish history and culture, and from one another at small member led discussion groups. I think of friendship because of the warm, welcome I met at Kol Hadash and the many members I now consider friends.
