Kehillot: Transforming Life at TKE

The Hebrew word Kehillot means communities.  As we approach our 40th year of Jewish life in Cobb County, we remember our origins as a house of connection, rejoice in the sacred blessings we savor together today, and we renew our commitment to creating a sacred community.  After all, TKE is truly a community of communities.

Through Kehillot, Temple Kol Emeth will build a network of relationships, linking members closer together for heightened belonging, becoming an engaging, rewarding home for all.  This program intends to transform its members into a growing, thriving, engaged community and congregation.

What is a Kehillah? A Kehillah is an intentional community of 6-10 people from our congregation whose members make a covenant to come together at least twice a month using Jewish intention to help create connection; connection with your spirituality, your community and yourself.  Kehillot are seasonal, each lasting approximately 3 months and are facilitated by the Shammash ("igniter") of the group. Kehillot are geared to different interests and passions, yet all Kehillot have the same purpose--connection.
