In The KItchen we are cooking-up wellness with programs to explore mind-body connections, food as medicine and food for the soul.  You can pull-up a chair at our Kitchen Table to create community chatting with old friends and making new ones.

Squaring the Circle with Good Nutrition

Food and Nutrition: the First Pillars of Lifestyle Medicine with Susan Dornstein

In The KItchen Food for thought is also on the menu… We’re dishing text study, sampling fresh perspectives, and introducing new presentations to help us make sense of our changing world — embracing sustainability over scarcity, and partnerships over patriarchy.

Imagine A Place. . . 

  • Committed to nurturing community, comfort, and caring;
  • a place that brings together all the right ingredients to nourish your mind, body and spirit;
  • Centering compassion, collaboration and a life-affirming ethic, where we can learn together how to cook, eat, think, and live more healthfully;
  • Rooted in the OYR community that connects with and influences the quality of life for area residents through exchanging ideas and serving-up food for thought;
  • Open to individuals from all faith traditions where you can explore a menu of mindfulness practices, savor new insights, and experience personal growth.

That place is The KItchen at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel.  

Celebrating 20 years with Cantor Amy E. Levy!
