Congregation Kol Simchah is a Jewish family that celebrates the gift of life by reaching out to the Divine, our fellow human beings, and the delicate web of life in the world of nature. Our Jewish identity begins with each unique individual, and we build a better world together through prayer, study, observance and social action.

We share building space with St. Francis in the Foothills UMC, and partner with the greater religious, spiritual and peace communities to 'do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our Creator'.

Our services are on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of every month at 7:15 pm in Ravenscroft Hall

They are usually about 75 minutes in duration.

We play a lot of music and sing a lot of songs in our services.

Come join us!
