Guidelines for Participating Organizations

Participating organizations in the Center City Kehillah agree to uphold the mission statement:

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

To accomplish this mission statement, we commit to…

  • Work together for the benefit of the Center City Jewish community.
    • Build relationships with staff, clergy, and lay leaders from other Kehillah organizations.
    • Refer constituents to other organizations, as appropriate.
    • Contribute energy and resources to planning and promoting Kehillah-sponsored events.
  • Participate in Kehillah structure.
    • Attend monthly meetings and encourage rabbinic participation in clergy meetings.
    • Get involved in working groups and/or steering team.
    • Donate $36 annually to Kehillah fund, as each group is able.
    • Adapt to ever-evolving publicity guidelines as the Kehillah creates online presence.
