Established in 1986 and officially recognized as a non-profit organization (NGO) in 1992, Kehillat Ra’anan is a congregation located in the city of Ra’anana, Israel and serves the Sharon region. We are affiliated with the Israeli Movement for Progressive Judaism and work together with Reform congregations throughout Israel and abroad. Our community is founded upon the ideals of pluralism and equality. Our goals include strengthening our relationships with each other and fostering participation in Israeli-Jewish culture in a changing and evolving Israeli society. Since 2002, when we moved into our own home – Beit Samueli – we have been able to offer many more activities and expand our reach to the surrounding community.
Beit Samueli – Kehillat Ra’anan strives to promote pluralism and tolerance in Israeli society, acting as a comprehensive, inclusive hub embracing a variety of Jewish and Israeli identities. To bring our vision to life, Beit Samueli has adopted a proactive, hands-on approach. The organization makes use of a host of services and advanced facilities to offer Jews and Israelis from all walks of life an accessible platform for social, religious and civic engagement, creating a culturally vibrant and welcoming community in the spirit of progressive Judaism.
The kehilla is led by Rabbi Chen Ben-Or Tsfoni.
