Keneseth Beth Israel

Richmond Virginia's Thriving Orthodox Synagogue...come grow with us.

Welcome to Keneseth Beth Israel!
 We are the thriving center of traditional Judaism in Richmond, founded in 1856, facilitating personal Jewish growth and religious observance in a welcoming environment open to all Jews.  Every Shabbat, KBI is hopping with inspiring davening, thought provoking sermons and classes, friendly camaraderie, lots of kids, and often followed by a hot-cholent, kiddush social!

At KBI, the generations come together to observe holidays, learn Torah, celebrate life cycle events, socialize, and build a Jewish tomorrow, steeped in the wisdom of three millennia of Torah.

Under the dynamic leadership of  Rabbi Dovid Asher, KBI invites you to come explore the wealth of activities that go on at the shul on a regular basis.
