When I lived in Philadelphia, Kol Tzedek was my community. My partner was often away for work, and I felt adopted by this beautiful community. Once when I was sick, the rabbi even brought me saltines! The community is warm, welcoming, diverse and creative. So much of its strength comes from its lay people. The only thing that I felt was a downer sometimes was that we did not have worship services every Shabbat. However the services we did have were musical and spiritual, and the rabbi always had great knowledge to share.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the warm, welcoming community.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
employ a rabbi full time and have its own space. It would do a lot of social justice programming in the community and offer more programs to its members.
