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, masking is optional but recommended. 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.

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


We are presently MASK-OPTIONAL (but recommended). As of March 16, 2023 the CDC COVID spread rate is LOW in both Bucks and Hunterdon Counties. KHN's full COVID/MASKING POLICY can be found HERE.
