Kehilat Kolenu Inc.

Kehilat Kolenu


Kehilat Kolenu began in the winter of 2012 as a small, informal gathering for Kabbalat Shabbat. Our desire was simple: to create a Friday night service true to its roots - a meaningful, musical celebration of the day of rest.

Over the years, our Kabbalat Shabbat service has evolved into what we believe is one of the most meaningful, uplifting and musical celebrations offered in the community, attracting 100+ participants weekly. We use instruments and voice to bring to life Hebrew music through contemporary folk songs and ancient psalms. 

Though the Kabbalat Shabbat service is at our heart, Kehilat Kolenu’s goal extends beyond: to nurture an active Humanistic Jewish community in Melbourne by providing inclusive services for chaggim, shabbat, and Jewish life-cycle events. Today, we are a vibrant community of more than 500 people across all ages and backgrounds.
