Welcome to the Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City

March 17, 2019
We, the rabbis who comprise the Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City are heartsick at the tragic loss of life in a New Zealand mosque; a horrific, hateful event motivated by baseless Islamophobia that occurred as our Muslim brothers and sisters were coming together for prayer. We mourn this tragedy,
and in this moment offer our support for all who grieve. We extend our prayers that G-d, (and our community) provide comfort to all who mourn; the Muslim community in New Zealand and our Muslim community here in Kansas City, as we in the Jewish community have been comforted in the past during times of mourning.

The Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City includes Orthodox, Conservative and Reform rabbis and serves as the rabbinic voice in and for the Jewish community and the larger Greater Kansas City community.  It guides the community in making religious decisions for community events, supports the rabbis in their personal and professional growth and develops and nourishes collegial relationships within the Association.  The Kansas City metropolitan area, Jewish and non-Jewish, is extremely fortunate to have this long standing Association of good will and united action.

We welcome all who seek to worship and study with us, regardless of their religious background and convictions, as the Tanakh instructs us, “Let my house be a house of prayer for all peoples.” (Isaiah 56:7)

However, we also request that all those who worship and study with and among us be respectful of Judaism and our customs. 

There have, at times, been those who believe that their religious duty requires them to testify to their faith in public and to convert Jews to Christianity.  We understand that such people act out of their personal convictions. Yet, common decency requires that all of us respect the religious convictions of the Jewish community, as well. Therefore, we cannot tolerate those people who would damage Judaism or Jews, or who would take advantage of our openness and hospitality to seduce Jews into another religion.  Anyone engaging in proselytizing among Jews at Jewish communal events will be asked to leave that event, and not to return to any events within the Jewish community.

Thank you for your respect for our religious convictions and the decorum that we request of all members of the community we share.
Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City
