Interfaith Families Are Welcome Here. 

Kol Rinah should be a place where Jews and their families of all backgrounds can gather together without judgement. Kol Rinah prides itself on being an inclusive community, and this includes our many member families that identify as interfaith. Whatever the interfaith configuration of your family may be, we are glad to welcome you as a part of the Kol Rinah Community. We are proud of our inclusion statement that reads:

 Kol Rinah welcomes everyone. This means YOU! We embrace a diversity of all Jews. including: Jews by choice, Jews of all hues, singles, couples, families, Interfaith households, LGBTQ Jews, Jews of all abilities and disabilities, the Jew-curious, and more!

We All Belong Grant 

We All Belong is a holistic approach for Kol Rinah regarding welcoming and integrating interfaith families in our congregation. Kol Rinah has a growing number of interfaith families, as well as a quickly growing number of members who are parents of adult children who are in interfaith relationships, whether dating, married, and/or with children. This grant is generously funded by the Jewish Federation of St. Louis.
