20s | 30s
There are many paths into the KI Community.
For many of our younger members, the path was simple–this is where they had their b’nei mitzvah, and it has always been home. For others, this is where they became Jews By Choice and have been welcomed with open arms. Still others became part of our family as parents in our award-winning preschool.
But sometimes, finding your community is a little more challenging–particularly when you are in your 20s & 30s, out of college and maybe living in a new area.
We have two programs that might help you find your community.
KI’s Kabbalat Shabbat (Friday night service) seems particularly attractive to the 20-30 age group.
KICKS is a warm community of spiritually-engaged Jews that strives to create a soulful and energetic Friday night t’filah. It is nourishing, inclusive, and cultivates a traditional-egalitarian davening atmosphere that is committed to powerful prayer experience, within the broader communal fabric of Jewish learning and socializing in Brookline and Boston.
We welcome new faces and seasoned ones; people of all ages, backgrounds, genders, and orientations; and encourage everyone to join us in taking responsibility for the group experience. You can learn more here.
KI is excited to be the home of Base Boston – the first synagogue partnership with Hillel’s wildly successful Base program.
Base is the home of a Rabbinic family that serves as a homebase, a grounding point for students, young adults, and their friends. Each Base is committed to pluralism and is founded upon three core values: hospitality, learning, and service.
At KI, our home base is the home of Rabbi Elizabeth and Matt Bonney-Cohen, and their two children, Ma’or & Tziona.
