About Koleinu

“The test of faith is whether I can make space for difference. Can I recognize God’s image in someone who is not in my image, whose language, faith, ideal, are different from mine? If I cannot, then I have made God in my image, instead of allowing Him to make me in His.”
Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

Who We Are

Koleinu is a Jewish organization in the Greater Fair Lawn area that supplements the existing landscape of Jewish programming with progressive and inclusive events. We offer social, educational, ritual, and communal programming meeting the specific needs of our members.

We promote the inclusion of women’s leadership and participation in communal Jewish spaces, welcome members and allies of diverse groups within the community, and engage with the larger Jewish and town communities.

Why We're Here

“Koleinu” is Hebrew for “our voice.” We elevate unheard voices and emphasize diversity of thought. We facilitate interesting and respectful discussions or come to a local event and embrace fellow Jews in the community. We create and hold space for every voice in our community to ensure that it is respected, valued, and heard.
