About Us

Kehilat Hadar is an independent, egalitarian, and lay-led community committed to spirited traditional prayer, study and social action. We meet for Shabbat morning services, some Friday nights, holiday services, and educational programs throughout the year.

Core Mission:

Kehilat Hadar is committed to prayer services with spirited davening and leyning. Kehilat Hadar services use the traditional liturgy in a halachic framework, with widespread communal participation, inspiring melodies and thoughtful divrei Torah. We believe that inclusive and deliberate planning by our volunteer leadership, coupled with flexibility and responsiveness, produces the best possible experience for all. 

Community: Kehilat Hadar draws from a wide section of the general Jewish community: all ages, observance levels, Jewish backgrounds, household types, gender and sexual identities We are committed to furthering openness and hospitality to both newcomers and long-time community members. 

Participation: Kehilat Hadar is driven by a spirit of volunteerism. Community members are the primary leaders of the davening, leyning and teaching.
