Welcome to KKBE!

Rooted deeply. Growing wisely. Cultivating community.

Founded in 1749, KKBE is one of the oldest congregations in America, and is known as the birthplace of American Reform Judaism. Our sanctuary is the oldest in continuous use for Jewish worship in America, but Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim (KKBE) is more than just a house of worship. We are a vibrant, inclusive and caring congregational family.

Upcoming Events

Bates O’Neal and Jonathan Ray will perform a concert of classical and musical theater music set to favorite English texts. Featured selections include “Soliloquy” from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, “You’ll Be Back” from Hamilton, and Herbert Howells’s “King David”.

This event is a partnership between KKBE and Taylor Music Group. TICKETS.
