Giving to Keneseth Israel

 

Since 1903, Keneseth Israel has been a vibrant and flourishing center of Jewish communal life in Allentown. Known for social action initiatives, beautiful music, learning opportunities for all ages and a warm, "haimish" atmosphere, KI is your place to be Jewish. You are not a number or a generic "family unit;" each person, each family is known and your membership is personal. Please consider making a donation so we can continue our mission well into the future. Thank you.
