A Conservative Synagogue Serving the Jewish communities of
Fulton & Montgomery Counties for over 120 Years

Knesseth Israel Small Chapel Knesseth Israel Synagogue is committed to being a spiritual home for our Jewish community, to educating our children to be proud of themselves and their Jewish heritage, to supporting each other in good times and bad, to respecting all people of good will, and to strengthening our bonds with Jews and Jewish causes here, in Israel and around the world.

We also have a Social Hall where we share fellowship and a snack after services every week; a Library & a Main Chapel that can seat up to 300 people. We invite Jews & Jewish families in the area to learn more about Knesseth Israel and call to arrange a visit..
