Want to help welcome people to our synagogue and build community? Come to the shmoozer training (dinner provided!) on August 13 or 28 to learn about some new volunteer roles as well as opportunities to make new friends. We hope you'll come, whether you are a founding member or someone considering joining! We'll be doing some "myth busting" about shmoozing (do you have to be an extrovert? think again!) so bring your excitement, your doubts and your questions and we will dig in together, with plenty of chances for practice. For more information (and to RSVP for dinner), please email email@example.com.

Be a Voice for Justice
We are grateful to be part of a growing movement calling for Muslim/Jewish/Immigrant solidarity in response to all hateful violence. Our committee for social justice and action is organizing and participating in a number of projects, events, and movements. Find out how you can get involved!
"Kol Tzedek is a warm, welcoming, and thoughtful community in which to experience and express Jewish life. I was initially drawn by the synagogue's commitment to social justice and quickly came to feel at home in the midst of this diverse and dynamic group, which welcomed me both before and after I converted to Judaism. My wife and I feel nurtured, challenged (in all the best ways), and inspired every time we visit Kol Tzedek, a place and a community that is central to our lives."
