About Congregation Kol Ami

Founded in 2022, Congregation Kol Ami was born from the unification of two long-standing Reform congregations in Cherry Hill, Temple Emanuel (est. 1950) and M’kor Shalom (est. 1974). With similar philosophies and the changing times, exploration of a new, singular Reform synagogue that espouses a philosophy between classic Reform and standard Conservative Judaism, a liberal synagogue allowing for traditional observances.

Kol Ami literally means “the voice of my people” and the founding members of this synagogue share their voices, blending them in harmony. Our clergy, leadership and congregation all strive to fulfill the purpose of being a family, responsive to the needs and diversity of our members, the Jewish people, and our community.

Hazak, Hazak, V’nithazek! Be strong, be strong and together we will strengthen one another.
