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 200 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.
