create Jewishness

Judaism is active and thriving at the Congregation of Moses in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Our synagogue is over 130 years old and we have occupied our current site since 1961.

CoM is affiliated with the USCJ and we participate actively in the Jewish Federation of Kalamazoo and Southwest Michigan. Our goal is to satisfy the diverse spiritual, social and educational needs of all of our members, young and old.

The mission of the Congregation of Moses is to nurture the spiritual and cultural values of an active Jewish community – to create Jewishness. We hope you will be a part of our community! We welcome you to contact us if you have any questions about our synagogue or the Kalamazoo Jewish community.

The Congregation of Moses, an egalitarian traditional synagogue, welcomes all interfaith families.

Revised July 2022

We continue to monitor CDC recommendations and Kalamazoo County hospitalization status while also touching base with our medical professionals. We bear in mind Jewish and societal values as we attempt to make the best decisions for our community as a whole.

With that in mind, we are ready to make the following changes to our COVID Policy effective Sunday, August 7th.

Shabbat/Holiday Morning Services – In honoring and protecting the most vulnerable among us, we will continue to require masking during Shabbat and Holiday Shacharit (morning) services but will no longer require vaccinations (though we continue to recommend both vaccines and boosters). If you have been exposed or are feeling sick, we request that you join us online.

We will continue to monitor both local and national (CDC) guidelines as well as community input, and we will inform everyone of any subsequent changes to our policies.
