Welcome to Kehillat Ahavat Tzion (KAT)
KAT was established Rosh Ha'Shana 5750 (September 1999) in Ramat Bet Shemesh by a handful of Anglo Olim (immigrants) with the purpose of creating a warm Kehilla (community) that could act both as a spiritual home and an extended family for our members. In our six years of existence, our membership has tripled to one hundred, including of new and veteran Olim and native Israelis.
From our modest beginnings in the living room of one of our members, we now hold our Tefillot (prayers) in a local kindergarten located directly across the street from the plot of land allocated to us by local authorities for building a permanent Bet Knesset. KAT is a vibrant community, committed to making everyone feel a part. We cater to the needs of our members - young and old - through Tefillot, Shiurim (Jewish learning), Kiddie Minyanim (services), and special events, and our Chesed (benevolance) programs ensure that no member is ever alone in a time of need. We pride ourselves in being a close-knit Kehilla created for our members, run by our members who are involved in every aspect developing our Kehilla with an extensive framework of committees and volunteers.
