Welcome

We are the independent, progressive Jewish community of RVA.

WHO WE ARE

Kehillah, the Hebrew word for community, is where you matter.

We want to inspire people spiritually, intellectually, and socially. Whoever you are, whatever your background, and wherever you are going in life, we hope you’ll make us part of your journey.

Kehillah is Virginia’s only independent, progressive Jewish community and is served by Rabbi Patrick Beaulier and Rebbetzin Stefanie Papps, along with an amazing group of staff and volunteers.
