Office Manager

Congregation Kehillath Israel (“KI”) is one of the country’s most storied and inclusive Conservative congregations, serving over 400 families from an exceptional multi-use campus in the heart of Brookline, Massachusetts. Our campus is now home to 5 prayer communities, several social service and civic organizations, a modern senior living community, an innovation lab, a scalable social hall, as well as a socially progressive, accommodating early education center and religious school. KI’s innovative endeavor and newly constructed campus is redefining the community of faith in the 21st century. KI’s vision for its campus is to be more than a site for prayer, but also Boston’s Jewish hub for arts, culture, music, continued learning, and community gathering.
