Kol Haskalah: A Humanistic Jewish Congregation was originally known as the Triangle Congregation for Humanistic Judaism. We serve the Triangle area of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh and surrounding communities). We are professors, programmers, teachers, artists, scientists, lawyers, doctors, musicians, moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, retirees and homemakers. Our members range in age from 2 to 90 years young. We are a lay-led community, which means our members determine the focus and essence of celebrations, services and activities in accordance with the tenets of Humanistic Judaism.
In addition to a dynamic Sunday School for kids ages 4-12 (leading to B’nai Mitzvah), we offer adult discussion groups, a book club, occasional Shabbat services and evening programs, fun-filled holiday programs and celebrations (with great potluck dinners) and plenty of opportunities to practice our core values of social justice, tzedakah (giving) and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
