The Kehilla of Lower Merion is a consortium of Jewish communities across the Main Line that come together for special services and celebrations throughout the year.

Participating Synagogues: Adath Israel, Beth David Reform Congregation, Har Zion Temple, Main Line Reform Temple, Narberth Havurah and Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El

We invite you to be with us for a moving and meaningful evening of study, conversation and meaingful prayer. Our neighborhood clergy will challenge and enlighten us, leading us in concurrent study sessions on relevant topics related to the themes of the upcoming High Holiday season. Learning  will set the perfect stage for our Selichot (Hebrew for forgiveness) Services, which are special services that serve as a prelude to the High Holy Day season.

Rabbi Simcha will be co-teaching and co-leading the Contemplative Service with colleagues from Har Zion and Adath Israel.
