Judaism is active and thriving at the Congregation of Moses in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Our synagogue is over 130 years old and we have occupied our current site for 59 years.
We are affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and participate actively in the Jewish Federation of Kalamazoo and Southwest Michigan. Many of our members are also active in Hadassah. We strive to satisfy the diverse spiritual, social, and educational needs of all of our members, young and old.
The mission of the Congregation of Moses is to nurture the spiritual and cultural values of an active Jewish community – to create Jewishness. We hope you will be a part of our community! We welcome you to contact us if you have any questions about our synagogue or the Kalamazoo Jewish community.
The Congregation of Moses, an egalitarian Conservative synagogue, welcomes all interfaith families.
Response to COVID-19
Until further notice, all religious services at CoM are cancelled. For those wanting to partake in a service, consider live-streaming them. A nice option is the Park Avenue Synagogue in New York, which livestreams both Friday night and Saturday morning services. According to the Rabbinical Assembly, you can say Kaddish with a livestream if they have a physical minyan present at the origin (which they do).
All scheduled April events have been postponed.
Access to the synagogue will be limited to employees only. If you have a question, you can still call the main office – Shirley will be working limited hours.
Finally, please remember we are a small community who looks out for each other. If you have a particular issue that needs addressing or you need help, please get in touch with Rabbi Spivak who will contact the person in our community best able to help you.
