KT in the News
Our weekly solidarity with our Muslim neighbors made the news! From February to August of 2018, Kol Tzedek and the West Philly Coalition Against Islamophobia met each Friday to show our support for our Muslim neighbors and stand in solidarity with them. We gathered every Friday outside of Masjid Al-Jamia to be a supportive, prayerful counter-presence in case of any further problems.
And check out this recent great article about our congregation from Philadelphia's Jewish Exponent!
Community Safety Through solidarity
Kol Tzedek has signed on to Jews for Racial & Economic Justice's Community Safety Pledge. For more about why, please read this amazing dvar torah from KT Board President Stefan Lynch here.

Kol Tzedek, a Voice for Justice, is a young and growing Reconstructionist social justice-focused synagogue in West Philadelphia. KT was founded in 2004 with a vision of being a neighborhood Jewish community for people who otherwise didn’t fit into synagogue life. We currently have 175 member households. We are artists, organizers, academics, parents, students, social workers, midwives, and misfits. We are a mixed multitude; people of varied ages, abilities, and genders committed to racial and economic justice. We are people who ask a lot of questions. We are neighbors and friends who cook, sing, and care for one another. And we have decided to bind our lives together in sacred community.
