Established in 1973, Kehilat Moreshet Avraham (KMA) is a vibrant Center of pluralistic Judaism in Southeast Jerusalem. In its warm and welcoming environment, KMA addresses the challenges of being an inclusive, egalitarian religious community in Israel.
Led by a dynamic rabbinic couple, Rabbis Amirit Rosen and David Goodman, KMA is home to Shabbat, holiday and weekday services, programming throughout the week for young children and parents, a thriving branch of the Noam Masorti Youth Movement, a Beit Midrash for learning Jewish texts, Tzedakah and Hessed projects, a Bar/Bat Mitzvah program, and more.
As the only Masorti (Conservative) synagogue building in Southern Jerusalem, KMA is often used by members of our sister egalitarian congregations in adjoining neighborhoods for programs and events.
Our Kehila’s name means “The Heritage Abraham” which is a reference to the Hill of Abraham, the panoramic overlook above our neighborhood, where Abraham once stood long ago on his way to the Akeda. For us, Abraham and Sarah are role models of justice, community outreach and activism. We seek to be a blessing to our members and to all those who encounter our community.
We invite you to support our community, to participate in online activities and learning as an associate member (annual gift of $180 and up), and when visiting Israel to worship with us and to enjoy our hospitality in the best tradition of our namesakes — Abraham and Sarah.
