Congregation Kol Ami is located at 252 Soundview Avenue, White Plains, NY 10606 -914.949.4717 ext. 115

A Jewish journey is about history. Where you are going, and where you have been. It is about times, and places, and people. It is about quiet moments with oneself and with God. It is about joyous moments spent with others.

Congregation Kol Ami’s Jewish journey began in 1923 when the Jewish Community Center of White Plains was formed and land was purchased on Sterling Avenue in White Plains to build a religious school and a temple. As the temple and the  school expanded, in 1944 7 1/2 acres of land were purchased at Soundview Avenue.

In May 1995 the Jewish Community Center of White Plains changed its name to Congregation Kol Ami, meaning “The Voice of My People”. From the start, and continuing today, our purpose has been to nurture the divine spark within, and to connect each of us to a meaningful Jewish journey.

Whatever your “Jewish” is, you’ll find it at Kol Ami.

Be our guest as we welcome in a sweet New Year. The following services are open to the community:
