Congregation Kol Ami was founded in 1972, merging the former Congregation B’nai Israel (Reform, founded in 1891) and Congregation Montefiore (Conservative, founded in 1899). Kol Ami means “All my people” and is affiliated with both the Reform and Conservative movements.
Kol Ami’s Rabbi is Ilana Schwartzman, a third generation rabbi, following in the footsteps of her father and grandfather. She joined Kol Ami in 2011.
Services at Kol Ami are divided between the Reform, generally Friday nights, and Conservative, generally Saturday mornings.
Kol Ami oversees all three Jewish cemeteries in Salt Lake City, each named for their former affiliated congregations: B’nai Israel, Montefiore, and Shaarei Zedek.
Kol Ami is located in the East Millcreek neighborhood, just off of I-80 at 2425 Heritage Way (2760 South). For more information about Kol Ami, visit their web site at http://www.conkolami.org/.
