About Kulanu

Kulanu means “all of us” in Hebrew. We seek to create an inclusive Jewish world. Founded in 1994, we support isolated, emerging, and returning Jewish communities around the world. Some are discovering Judaism for the first time, others reinvigorating a forgotten practice, but all have experienced some kind of disconnection from global Jewry.

We raise awareness and support to assist these groups with their desire to learn more about Judaism and connect with Jews beyond their community. The connections we forge – through education, research, networking, fundraising, sustainable development, and publications – help “all of us” to enrich our Jewish lives.

Our backgrounds are diverse in terms of location and denomination, but we are bound by a common commitment to developing Judaism and Jewish life for all who seek this for themselves. You can meet our team here and learn about our partner communities here. We encourage you to join “all of us” by getting involved with Kulanu!
