New Beginnings at Keneseth Beth Israel


Shalom Richmond. My name is Rabbi Adam Winston. I am a Richmond native and the President of Congregation Keneseth Beth Israel, where Jewish Living Happens.

As Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur come closer, new beginnings are in the air. For that reason, I want to invite you and your family to join us, to pray, to learn, to celebrate.

Our programming philosophy focuses on three basic needs:

We nurture the Jewish Body with a KBI Gold Kiddush every Shabbat morning at 10:45 am. Delicious food, good drink, and great community.

We nurture the Jewish Heart with prayer and music. Join us for a night of song and inspiration at our pre-selichot kumzitz (guitar circle) Saturday, Sept. 17, at 10:45 p.m.

We nurture the Jewish Mind with engaging classes that confront today’s toughest issues with timeless Jewish Wisdom. Join us for back-to-back classes at our Torah Town Hall, every Shabbat afternoon, 5-6:30 p.m.

The thrust of Rosh Hashanah is crowning HaShem King. That is done chiefly by living a Jewish Life infused with Jewish values, always keeping in the front of our minds that we are all created in God’s image. Our community is not complete without you.

So join us. Reach out to our Executive Manager, Elliot Plotnick, eplotnick@kbirva.com, or me, at kbipresident@kbirva.com, to learn more about KBI, our programs, membership, and High Holy Day availability.

Because KBI is where Jewish Living Happens. And the time for New Beginnings is now.

Shanah Tovah!

Rabbi Adam Winston

President, Keneseth Beth Israel
