Review for Kehilat Hadar, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Kehilat Hadar was the welcoming, egalitarian community I was looking for when I moved to NY. Everyone there was welcoming and made me instantly feel like I belonged. There are always people saying hello and inviting others to Shabbat meals. Kehilat Hadar is also a place that encourages participation. They help anyone who wants to learn to lead davening or to read from the Torah. The people of Kehilat Hadar have become more than just a community of friends. They are my extended family.

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

helping with their social justice work.

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

feeling that I belong to a kehilah - a community. It has been a place where I could grow and participate at my own level of observance without any pressure of trying to conform.

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

move into a permanent location of its own instead of renting available locations and carrying supplies to and from storage each week. Hadar could also reach out further to help other communities create the type of kehilah we have here in New York.
