Our Community

From the first time you walk through the door at our “Mighty, Little Synagogue” you will be warmly greeted. We welcome everyone who considers themself part of a Jewish family, including interfaith families.

We fondly call CKI “our Mighty, Little Synagogue,” and gather regularly for weekly Friday night Shabbat services, monthly Saturday morning services and Torah study, Jewish Holiday celebrations, Adult Education programs, Book Discussions, and social events.

While our synagogue was originally Orthodox, and later joined the Conservative movement, CKI is not currently officially affiliated with any of the movements. Our members come from a variety of Jewish traditions and backgrounds, and our services are a beautiful blend of the traditional and contemporary, including familiar old melodies along with more modern tunes.

Women and men participate equally in all aspects of life at CKI, including holding office, chairing committees, reading from the Torah, and leading services. Many of our congregants volunteer their time and efforts to help run our synagogue’s committees, activities, and social events.

Our close-knit and inclusive community provides a rich environment for spiritual renewal and growth, education, celebration, and mutual support. Our Chesed (Caring) committee reaches out to support congregants in times of both joy and sorrow.
