The Kehillat Israel Society of Sisters (“KISS”)

Our vibrant KISS group strives to establish deeper, more meaningful connections between the women of our KI community through events that combine social, spiritual, and tikkun olam elements while having fun. In the past we’ve held exciting author events, supported the amazing Women’s Seders, created enlightening health luncheons, held a welcome tea for Rabbi Amy, spotlighted important causes from local foster children to Jewish World Watch, took field trips to art exhibits, attended concerts at the Skirball, held potluck Shabbat dinners, and planned the incredible annual women’s retreat. By participating in one or more of these events, we made new friends, felt inspired, and got energized, while having loads of fun.
