The Center City Kehillah is a network of communities representing the diversity of Jewish life in urban Philadelphia.

About the Kehillah of CENTER CITY

As a hub for Jewish life, we strengthen individual and communal connections by creating both accessible entry points and in-depth opportunities to grow. Our participating organizations include synagogues and congregations; cultural, educational, and social justice institutions; and nonprofit initiatives. Our geographic region includes Center City, South Philly, West Philly, and Northwest Philly.

Our annual events include a Chanukah candle lighting in Rittenhouse Square and a Jewish Night of Learning for Shavuot as well as monthly professional development opportunities for our organizational representatives. We build relationships between institutions and individuals, plan collaborative programming, and assist individuals looking to connect with the community. We also provide ongoing opportunities for community members to share resources, make new connections, and learn about each other’s experiences.
