Announcement

Welcome to Historic Kesher Israel

To Our Valued Members of Congregation Kesher Israel:

First, and most importantly, we sincerely hope that you and your family are healthy and well. We want to reassure you that safety is our #1 priority for our members, employees, and community during this unprecedented health crisis. We have been, and will continue to, closely monitor the updates around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Effective March 1, 2021, we have reinstated our in-person Shabbat Morning Service. Face masks and 6-foot physical distancing are still required for all congregants and synagogue staff. All visitors will have their temperature taken and recorded upon arrival at the front door.

Our synagogue remains committed to the safety of all who joins us, and congregants may still reach us by phone at (215) 922-1776 or by email at office@historickesherisrael.org.

We are all in this together; our goal is to help ensure everyone stays as healthy as possible during this challenging time. We will be sure to send follow-up emails and post notices on our website with all important updates.

Thank you for your continued support of Historic Congregation Kesher Israel; it is our pleasure to serve you, our congregants, and the community. We hope you and your family stay safe and healthy.
