Help us build our shul!

Come join us for davening. We meet every couple weeks, and are a place that welcomes every Jew. Let's enjoy Shabbos together and continue building Kehilat Ahavat Yisrael (KAY)!

We also welcome any and all financial contributions.

Get to Know Us

We are a Modern Orthodox shul that is warm, friendly, inclusive and practices Ahavat Yisrael. We strive to create an environment in which every Jew feels that they belong and has the opportunity to connect to Hashem. We celebrate the idea that each individual is a unique and integral part of our Kahal.
