Becoming a Member

Congregation KTI is an egalitarian and progressive congregation serving Port Chester, Rye Brook, Rye, and Greenwich for over a century. This congregation was born of its own diversity--Jews of different backgrounds merging for a purpose--to worship, learn and lean on each other. Today, that spirit is alive and is even more diverse, embracing interfaith families, single-parent families, LGBTQ families and Jews by choice in a Conservative, but modern tradition.

We learn from each other. We support each other. We gather to engage in social action. We commune with nature. KTI boasts inspiring clergy, values Jewish learning, fosters spiritual worship, serves the community, and supports the State of Israel.

Our suburban campus contains an architecturally significant and majestic sanctuary, a social hall, a daily prayer room, a revered Religious School, an Early Childhood Program, and clergy and custodial residences.

All are welcome to participate in our meaningful prayer services, special events, adult education programs, social action efforts, and community activities.
