Since its founding in 1964 and subsequent affiliation with the Reconstructionist Movement in 1984, Kehillat Ahavat Achim, the Jewish Congregation of New Paltz, has been a vibrant, egalitarian, congregation. We are an intergenerational community, open to all Jews: singles, families, LGBTQ, interracial, interfaith couples, and interfaith families. Our congregation is also committed to maintaining a respectful attitude for other faiths.
With a deep respect for tradition, we seek to evolve as the world around us evolves. Together we learn, share lifecycle events, support each other, and commit to tikkun olam. Through numerous activities and functions, our members are able to find a way to participate and add their experience and talent to the community. Please join us for Shabbat services or a community event soon.
