History

 

Kol Rinah embodies the new spirit of Conservative Judaism in the Midwest. It radiates the joy of worship, learning and Jewish music both in and out – into our souls and out to the families, friends and community.

History

While Kol Rinah might be St. Louis’ newest congregation, we are also a community rich with history and with deep roots in the city.  These roots come from our two legacy congregations, Brith Sholom Kneseth Israel and Shaare Zedek.  Separately our two communities have been an integral part of St. Louis Jewish life for over a century.

In 2013, we chose to greet the future by combining our resources and merging our congregations.  In creating this new shul, we had the opportunity to blend the best of our two communities and create a place where we can express our love of Judaism and St. Louis.
