Kol Tzedek has been an amazing positive force in my life every since I first attended High Holiday services there two years ago. The range of events and services they offer is staggering --- aside from the expected religious services, their members run a Torah school, cook and deliver meals for families with new babies, involve themselves in community organizations and interfaith efforts (like winterizing homes in West Philadelphia), and so on, all without losing the warm and welcoming community atmosphere that first drew me in two years ago. In all honesty, before attended Kol Tzedek I was feeling very disconnected from my religion and my community. But KT helped me to find the positive aspects of both, and now I'm a committed member and frequent volunteer.
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.
