Welcome to Kol HaLev, Cleveland's Reconstructionist Jewish Community!
Kol HaLev means "Voice of the Heart" in Hebrew. Mindful of the vast and evolving landscape of "who is a Jew," our growing, diverse, multi-generational community embraces and celebrates all who seek a spirited, collaborative environment in which to explore Judaism through prayer, study, song, fellowship and social action, or tikkun olam (literally, "repairing the world.")
Drawing on both traditional and innovative sources, Kol HaLev fosters an engaging Jewish experience that infuses delight in our heritage and supports meaningful communal and personal growth.
Kol HaLev is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement. Reconstructionism is based on the philosophy of Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, who defined Judaism as the "evolving religious civilization of the Jewish People." To read more about Reconstructionism, please visit our "About Kol HaLev" pages.
Kol HaLev holds regular Shabbat and holiday religious services and celebrations, life cycle events, community service activities and innovative educational programs for all ages. We meet at The Lillian and Betty Ratner School, 27575 Shaker Boulevard, in Pepper Pike. We look forward to welcoming you to our services and programs!
