What a Jewish Community Can Be

We each have an answer to that query. And probably none of us would agree as to what that would be.

 

That is its beauty: We are not one thing; we are many.

We are spiritual. Ethical. Socially engaged. Vibrant. Diverse. Giving. We value learning, questioning, and heritage. We are to be an integral part of the Kingston community and a strong, Jewish Reform voice for the Hudson Valley.

 

We value celebration and joy above all.

You can find all of those here at Congregation Emanuel. That is what we mean by community.

 

Not one thing. Many.

Join us on our journey...

More than a century and a half ago, a ragtag lot of Ashkinazic Jews gathered in the Rondout home of Alexander Adler and began holding Orthodox services. And so, Congregation Emanuel was born.

“We have all become entrenched in our polarized positions. We surround ourselves with those who share our views, and we are all too ready to delegitimize those who hold a divergent position. It is incumbent upon us to speak out for the values that are fundamental to our beliefs, and it behooves us to recognize that there are others who cherish divergent views.”

~ Rabbi Yael Romer
