About CKI

Congregation Knesseth Israel has been serving the Jewish communities in and around Somerset, Middlesex, and Hunterdon counties for over 95 years. We are a vibrant community of men, women, and children who worship, study, socialize, and celebrate together.

Our synagogue provides a rich environment for spiritual renewal and growth, lifelong Jewish learning, and mutual support.

While our congregation has its roots in Conservative Judaism, CKI is not currently affiliated with any national movement. Our religious services and practices embrace Jewish tradition and weave it into the context of our contemporary lives.

Join Us!

At CKI, we are very proud of our inclusive community and relaxed atmosphere. As soon as you walk through our doors, we’ll greet you warmly and make you feel at home!

We invite you to join us in worship at a Friday or Saturday Shabbat service, meet our Rabbi and congregants, and tour the building.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our temple family!

Membership Dues
At CKI we take pride in the wide range of services that we provide to our members, while keeping our dues among the lowest in the area. We offer new members discounted dues rates for their first and second years!

Please contact our Membership Chair, Lori Siegel, for details about membership at CKI, and a membership packet.

Religious School visits
If you have children of Religious School age, we welcome you to come by on a Sunday morning, meet the other parents, and have your child sample a class.
