Kol HaLev offers many different ways for members to broaden their understanding of Judaism spiritually, historically, culturally and religiously with special attention to the Reconstructionist viewpoint. Most of our offerings take place at our members’ homes. We look forward to having you join us as part of your continuing Jewish education and spiritual journey. Your input and ideas for programming are always welcome!
