Founded in 1847,  Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel has been the home congregation of thousands of Philadelphia Jews and their families.  A concerted effort has been made to collect the genealogies of a number of our oldest families.  We also have extensive data pertaining to religious school enrollment and our memorials.   Curious family members,  amateur genealogists and professional researchers are all invited to explore our Archives and this website. We are eager to help you explore your family’s past and assist in your genealogical research.
