The purpose of Congregation Kol Ami is to promote the principles of Judaism through Congregational worship, study, and assembly; to infuse the principles of Judaism into the daily lives of the Congregation’s members, especially the young; and to provide for the betterment of the Jewish community and the community at large.
Congregation Kol Ami (CKA) is a Reform congregation that maintains affiliation with the Union for Reform Judaism. Congregation Kol Ami is dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of individuals within the Jewish community by promoting and preserving Jewish identity and values. We do this through the study of Torah, Beit tefillah, tikkun olam, tzedakah and life-long learning, while striving to strengthen our connection to the Jewish people, Israel and Jewish history. In keeping with this purpose, Kol Ami is committed to sustaining a welcoming community for Jewish people and for those who are friends and supporters of Judaism. Anyone with an interest in being connected to this flourishing Jewish community only 7 miles from Portland, Oregon, is welcome to participate.
