Welcome to Kolot Mayim – Vancouver Island’s Reform Temple
“Kolot Mayim is my religious home. It is a small, caring community. I love the music and content of the reform service.” Richard Weiss
Kolot Mayim welcomes all Jewish people, their family members, and anyone interested in Jewish culture, practice, spirituality and community. We are an inclusive, warm and welcoming congregation; deeply committed to the Reform Movement’s 1999 platform which states:
“Our doors are open to people of all ages, to varied kinds of families, to all regardless of their sexual orientation, to gerim (those who have converted to Judaism) and to all individuals and families, including the intermarried who strive to create a Jewish home.”
With the values of the Reform Movement as our inspiration, Kolot Mayim has become the spiritual home to families and individuals that previously struggled to find a place where they belonged. There are no barriers for anyone regardless of their level of Jewish knowledge, observance or practice. We trust that when you join us, you too will feel at home. Our weekly services, High Holy Days, and special events are held at the Jewish Community Centre of Victoria (JCC), 3636 Shelbourne Street, Victoria, B.C., Canada.
We invite you to connect with us online or in person, and look forward to meeting you!
