About Kesser Israel

Ever since we were founded, over a century ago, Congregation Kesser Israel has been inspiring Jewish life in the Pacific Northwest. Today, Kesser Israel is the longest-established and largest Orthodox community in the state of Oregon. Our congregation is a diverse, close-knit community of more that 125 families and singles in every age group.

Congregation Kesser Israel is a growing community with answers to the pressing questions of Jewish identity. Our synagogue offers people the personal spiritual connection they seek. Today, we need to build this foundation of Jewish life so that we can inspire more Jewish lives.
