About Us

Kol Halev is a Jewish synagogue, reimagined
“Kol HaLev” means “with all your heart.” We put our heart into everything we do, and invite you to join us in serving God and our fellows with your whole heart together with us.
Formed in 2019 by Rabbi Siff, Kol HaLev aims to offer transformative, meaningful Jewish practice. We offer a Judaism which engages the soul by being accessible, participatory, and uplifting: spiritual practice which energizes and focuses; Torah study which challenges us emotionally, intellectually, and ethically, and which is directly applicable to the pressing issues of our day; and acts of service which engage us with the broader world through the framework of mitzvot and Jewish values.
We seek ways to grow our neshamot (souls), including a variety of programs which are accessible, participatory, and uplifting. We are non-denominational, and invite involvement from people with any (or no) Jewish background or even not Jewish who resonate with our values.

We Offer

Worship which touches the soul: experiences of chanting, discussing, and meditating which nurture and inspire us spiritually, awakening us to the grandeur of being alive and challenging us to utilize that gift to the utmost. Worship that inspires us to dance, cry, and open our hearts.
Torah study which challenges us intellectually and pushes us to be better humans, and bring the light of the divine into the world. For children, experiences of study which do not feel like Hebrew School, but which engage different modalities to give them meaningful and fun experiences inspiring them toward a life of Torah study.
Meaningful action together as a community to improve the lives of others and the well-being of our planet. We also seek to address contemporary issues, improving the world around us through dialogue, action, and advocacy.

Our Core Values

• Inclusive and accessible: We welcome old & young, from all backgrounds and beliefs/observance levels
• Flexibility, creativity & joy
• Impacting the world, addressing the pressing issues of our day
• Nurturing health (physical, spiritual, emotional) for congregants, staff, & the world
• Caring, respectful community, inspiring care and respect in our families, institutions, and the world
WE HOPE YOU JOIN US ON THIS JOURNEY!
