Join Rabbi Steinmetz on an unforgettable and thought provoking trip to Jewish heritage sites in Berlin and Prague. See firsthand the history, tragedy and rebirth of central European Jewry, and meet with inspiring local leaders who have remarkable stories to tell. Dr. David Bernstein, Dean of the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem, will be our traveling scholar. He holds a Ph.D. from New York University, and has inspired hundreds of people in the KJ/Ramaz community on previous missions. We are certain that this mission will be an absolute inspiration, a trip unlike any other. For details and registration please click here.
Main Synagogue Memorial Plaques
Plaques represent a traditional and dignified memorial to loved ones. At KJ, approaching its 150th year, we abide our longstanding tradition of keeping the lights lit on either side of the plaque each year during the full month of the Yahrzeit and also when we recite Yizkor on Yom Kippur, Shemini Atzeret, Pesach, and Shavuot. Plaques per person may be commissioned for a tax deductible donation of $1,500 by ordering here.
