Kesher Israel Congregation
Kesher Israel Congregation was founded in 1902 by men and women determined to create a Jewish presence in Harrisburg, PA based on the observance and study of Torah, prayer, and acts of loving kindness. Kesher Israel continues to hold true to those principles and thrives as an Orthodox synagogue.
For over 100 years, Kesher Israel has maintained a vibrant Orthodox community in Harrisburg. Kesher Israel remains dedicated to supporting the religious, spiritual, and educational needs of its membership, and to making the relevance and excitement of Judaism accessible to all.
Kesher Israel regularly welcomes renowned Jewish personalities from around the world as scholars-in-residence. For nearly 20 years, KI has also been proud to sponsor a summer Kollel program to enrich our Torah studies, and offer fun-filled programming for Harrisburg's Jewish youth.
Through daily services, Torah study opportunities, special events, and holiday celebrations, Kesher Israel offers great opportunities to socialize with other members of our Jewish community, have our lives enhanced by Judaism, and experience the richness of our traditions.
We look forward to welcoming you to Kesher Israel Congregation!
Welcome to Harrisburg!
Kesher Israel has implemented a bold new project named ‘KI Recruiting’. This initiative has the following two goals: A) networking with local employers to find quality jobs for Jewish individuals/families interested in relocating to Harrisburg; and B) assisting with the integration of those individuals/families into our community.
