Welcome to the Kehilat HaNahar Community

Kehilat Hanahar, 'The Little Shul by the River', is grounded in tradition yet innovative and current. Since our founding in 1994/5457 we have created a dynamic and engaged synagogue and Jewish community here in the historic heart of the Delaware Valley, serving members from across Bucks County, Pennsylvania and Hunterdon and Mercer Counties in New Jersey. As a Reconstructionist congregation, we are committed to:

  • Practicing Judaism in a manner that is relevant to modern Jews who desire to maintain a connection with our historic yet ever-evolving civilization.
  • Defining Judaism as more than a religion. For us it is an evolving, religious civilization encompassing history, literature, art, music, nature, and language.
  • Building a multi-generational and diverse Jewish community. We welcome old, young, partnered, individuals, families and are welcoming to LGBTQ people.
  • Creating in our synagogue and in our vibrant community a means for affirming the ideals of our tradition, in both worship and deed.
  • Instructing our young and old in our history, tradition, and Torah.

We are lead by Rabbi Diana Miller, who succeeded our founding spiritual leader, Rabbi Sandy Roth. We encourage you to visit our Little Shul by the River - - get to know our caring, stimulating, and lively Jewish community. Shabbat services are held each Friday evening at our synagogue, located atop a wooded hillside in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
