An egalitarian home for your Jewish community.

Welcome to the Little Shul by the River!

Even with all the uncertainty brought on by COVID, here at Kehilat HaNahar we have remained a vibrant, warm and strong community over the past two years, davening, celebrating and learning together virtually and, when safe, in-person.


Our Hosen (Resilience) Committee has set safety guidelines and meets regularly to reassess, taking expert recommendations and input from community members.


For in-person, indoor activities, we require attendees to be vaccinated or wear a mask at all times. Seating for those who wish to maintain a social distance is available for both indoor and outdoor activities.


Many of our activities including services, Torah study and adult learning are also offered via Zoom.

  • Services are in-person (outdoors weather permitting or indoors if not) and on Zoom. 
  • Torah study (Thursdays) is in-person and on Zoom. For more information, contact Rabbi Diana at
  • Bagel U classes (adult education) are mostly via Zoom. For more information, contact Abraham Leibson at To view videos of recent classes and see what's coming up soon, click HERE.
  • Office hours are Sundays from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm (when school is in session), Mondays from 12 - 4 pm, and Wednesdays and Fridays 9 am - 3 pm. Please contact office administrator Joe Lewin if you need anything at

We were thrilled to have our Annual Membership Picnic in person in Fall 2021. View pictures of the fun HERE.
