What is a Kehilah?

Ashreynu is a Jewish community.

You might be familiar with the term synagogue, or shul, or chavurah, or congregation, or temple, or beit knesset…you get the idea. While many use these terms interchangeably, we chose the word kehilah to best describe the vibe, or atmosphere, of our community.

We do all the things Jewish communities do: we gather on Shabbat and Chagim to daven, to eat, to sing, to celebrate, and spend time together. We are about direct, warm, Jewish multi-generational experiences in community with each other. We provide educational programming to kids, offer classes and social/cultural experiences for adults, and support each other in times of simcha and sorrow.
