Congregation Kol Ami is a spiritually engaged, urban-centered Jewish community. Committed to collective action to improve the community and the world, Kol Ami is a safe and welcoming, friendly, broadly inclusive congregation that aims to become a hub for Jewish activity in Kansas City.
Welcome to Kehilat Kol Ami-our community, and our website. I am blessed that my Jewish journey has led me to be a part of this extraordinary group of caring and compassionate people, each on their own Jewish journey that has led them to each other, and to us. We welcome you, whoever you are, and wherever you are on a Jewish path.
“Caring and compassionate” isn’t just a description of our community; it’s also a statement of our values and mission. We are committed to making sure that everyone in our congregation knows they are valued. It leads us to pursue acts of tikkun olam, of social justice and community activism to improve our city, our country, K'lal Yisrael (the Jewish community around the globe), and the entire world. Our location in mid-town Kansas City speaks to our intention to be a part of, and contributors to, a diverse urban community.
You are welcome to join with us for worship, learning, or any Kol Ami project. I am always eager to talk with anyone about Kol Ami and Jewish life. Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone to further discuss Kol Ami, or with any questions you may have.

This is a great way to kick off your holiday weekend so join us for the service at 6:45pm followed by what is always a wonderful meal when Kol Ami people bring pot luck!
