Kol Tzedek is an incredibly warm and welcoming place. As a new member of the community, people reached out to me without my having to seek them out. My significant other is not Jewish and Kol Tzedek is a welcoming place for him too, with many programs for interfaith couples and an accessible service that he can participate in. I highly recommend Kol Tzedek and the incredible community there to anyone who moves to Philadelphia!
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.
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.
