It would take a veritable encyclopedia of KI history to fully detail our congregation’s story. From modest origins as Philadelphia’s fourth synagogue, to this area’s first Reform synagogue, to the dramatic decision to call the country’s leading rabbinic abolitionist to its pulpit, to the founding of the Orphan’s Guardian Society and the founding of an agricultural college, to its leading role n the history o Reform Judaism and Reform Jewish music and to its incredible history of rabbinic and intellectual leadership, KI truly has no peer. Some of America’s most illustrious Jewish families from the Annenbergs to the Guggenheims to the Rosenwalds have also called KI their spiritual home. Indeed, KI has so much to be proud of and to preserve for the future. This website is the home of our memories and our archives.
