Jews By Choice
If you are a Jew by Choice, KI welcomes you with a whole heart. You will find many other congregants who have made the same journey….including many members of our current and past Board of Trustees.
KI offers you opportunities to continue on your Jewish journey, from a Learner’s Minyan to in-depth one-on-one Talmud study. We welcome you to our family!
If you’re considering conversion, at KI you’re hardly alone. Each year some 20 seekers begin their journey toward deeper understanding and fresh experiences guided by one of our rabbis and our encouraging community. To take the first step, please email Rabbi Hamilton directly.

Once a candidate is ready, she or he goes through a halachic (strictly according to Jewish law) conversion and is forever more embraced as a full member of the Jewish people.
If you’re not ready for conversion, but are interested in learning more about Judaism, feel free to come to any of our educational programs (listed in the calendar of events), or through the Jewish Discovery Institute, Boston’s resource for interfaith couples, families and individuals interested in learning about Conservative Judaism. JDI programs are frequently held at KI.
The Jewish Discovery Institute is Boston’s resource for interfaith couples, families and individuals interested in learning about Conservative Judaism. We offer a wide variety of programs for interfaith couples, families and individuals interested in learning more about Judaism. From basic introduction experiences to in-depth conversion programs, from support groups to training seminars, we hope all of our programs add meaning, understanding, and comfort.
Many of the JDI’s classes are held at KI. Check their website here for more information.
