Kol Tzedek is a warm, spiritual, and welcoming community. If I had more time I would go much more often than I do now. I also appreciate that it is a part of a larger community space. Their newsletters are helpful and commitment to Tikkun Olam inspiring.

Kol Tzedek has been an integral part of my life in West Philadelphia. The synagogue has built a community of wonderful people with varying degrees of involvement. Everyone is met on their own level and feels welcome.

Kol Tzedek has been instrumental in building a Jewish community for families with young children in the University City area. The children's services for shabbat and holidays create a warm and welcoming environment for little ones to learn about Jewish life and to make Jewish friends in their community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Exposing my children and myself to Jewish culture and other Jewish people in my community

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Incredibly enthusiastic and giving of their time

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do so very much. As a start up synogogue it is very much in need of money for staff, supplies, etc. - everything that you don't think about when you go to more established synogogues is what Kol Tzedek needs.

Nearly all my life I have attended services in interfaith centers. Kol Tzedek is the first congregation where the notion of an interfaith center feels real rather than multiple organizations sharing the same space but operating like ships passing in the night. They are focused on the local community, one that is flourishing but also challenged, and are certainly poised for great future spiritual success.

I must admit I am a little biased, as a founding member of Kol Tzedek, and a longtime fixture of the board. But it is an incredible intentional community of progressives from all across the religious spectrum. Progressive in the sense that we all agree to be ourselves and to deliberate around a 21st century Judaism that meets our needs, but is informed by tradition. I had looked at other shuls before but nothing came close to what we have created in the homes, parks, and space at Calvary.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own growth as a leader, a communicator, a learner and a Jew.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

keep it like it is, but allow it to grow with outside "angel" financial support to move towards more programming and celebrations.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

growing as a person by being part of it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

considerate, kind, down-to-earth, and smart-as-a-whip.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide a home for Jewish seekers, thinkers and feelers in its own facility, with a ton of innovative and challenging programs - it could serve as a beacon for progressive judaism everywhere.

Ways to make it better...

we had the money for own space that we could fill with amazing programs and services.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the youth and high turnover in the west philly community and the relative lack of financial wealth in the young congregation to fund more program

One thing I'd also say is that...

it's one of the great jewish organizations in America today!
