Kol Haverim is a community for Humanistic Judaism in Ithaca, New York. Together since 1999, we explored and celebrated what it means to be Jewish from a Secular and Humanistic perspective. Kol Haverim provided a welcoming approach to Jewish celebrations for all people who value Jewish identify by birth, by choice, or by association and desire to express their connection to Jewish heritage and culture consistent with a humanistic philosophy of life. We engaged in self-reflection and take responsibility for working toward “Tikkun Olam” – repairing the world. We were an inclusive congregation that welcomes all kinds of families, whether blended, traditional, interfaith, intercultural, or interracial, and people of all races, genders, and sexual orientations.
NOTE: KOL HAVERIM IS IN THE PROCESS OF FORMAL DISSOLUTION. WE THANK EVERYONE WHO WAS PART OF THIS COMMUNITY OVER THE PAST SEVERAL DECADES.
