Welcome to Congregation Kol Ami of Frederick

Congregation Kol Ami of Frederick is an inclusive, Reform Jewish congregation that is family-focused, community oriented, emphasizing spiritual and cultural identity, and dedicated to the Jewish education of all generations. CKAF is a growing, forward-looking Jewish community with a thriving Religious School, and more exciting programs each year!

Due to technical and clerical concerns, we are currently unable to accept credit card payments for Membership Dues, School Tuition, and HHD at this time.  The Donation form will still be available for online submission.  We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause!


Emergency Family Shelter Program Needs YOU!

Kol Ami along with ERUCC and UUCF host the Frederick’s homeless through the Religious Coalition’s (RC) Family Emergency Shelter project a few times a year. This is our opportunity to join this Interfaith effort to provide homeless families with a desperately needed helping hand.

The next two week period housed at ERUCC’s Trinity Chapel, and supported by volunteers from our three congregations are September 5th-19th. Please note that the High Holidays fall within these dates, so let's sign up early to help out with the times that do not affect the holidays!
