KI was founded in 1970 by a small group of families who wished to create a fully participatory Jewish experience that would be rich in community and tradition, and to establish a superior religious school.
Members of KI are a diverse group, coming originally from every denomination. In our participatory congregation, the breadth of members' backgrounds and experience is a source of strength, and we encourage as much personal choice in our Jewish practices as possible. In this way we draw the best efforts from the women and men who lead our services, lead and participate in our committees, and teach our children and each other.
Our Jewish community encourages all its members to get actively involved and to make a difference, and there are many opportunities for members to join in the life of the community. These include weekly Shabbat morning services, holiday observances, festival celebrations, a religious school, adult education programs, and a variety of social and cultural programs throughout the year.
