Kehilat Hanahar, 'The Little Shul by the River', is all about the 21st century, yet grounded in tradition. Since our founding in 1994/5457 we have created a dynamic and unique synagogue and Jewish community here in the historic heart of the Delaware Valley, serving members from across Bucks County, PA and Hunterdon and Mercer Counties in NJ. As a Reconstructionist congregation, we are committed to:

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

We are lead by Rabbi Diana Miller, who succeeds our founding Rabbi, Rabbi Sandy Roth. To visit with us and to be a part of our community is an experience you will never forget. To be among our caring, stimulating and lively congregants is to bring a new dimension to Judaism. We welcome you and look forward to sharing our joy with you. Shabbat services are held each Friday at our synagogue, located atop a wooded hillside in New Hope, PA.
