About Congregation Kol Am

It is not hard to give a chronology of events in the life of Congregation Kol Am -- it is filled with the events that constitute the world of a Reform Jewish temple -- Shabbat worship, holiday celebration, life cycle events, Religious School, Board meetings, committee meetings, fund-raisers etc.

What is much more difficult is to capture the essence of who we are and what we offer to our members, far beyond the activities themselves.  Visitors who attend our services notice it right away. There is a warmth and outreach between members and to newcomers.  There is richness to the song that fills our "sanctuary," with almost global participation.  The magnificance of our Choir, which is fully volunteer, serves as one of our most glowing examples of how much we can do within a small congregation.  Our teachers, choir director, cantorial soloist and temple administrator are member volunteers; the webmaster and photographer are member volunteers.   Members care enough about the congregation to devote extensive time as in a cooperative.  Our new Rabbi Ellie Shemtov, is totally accessible and involved in all aspects of the congregation.

It's almost an example of "You have to see and feel it, to believe it."   Our services are held at 59 Broad Street, Freehold Boro.   We extend a warm invitation to join us and experience yourselves the special quality that is Congregation Kol Am.
