Who We Are

New Reform Temple

Urban Community

You’ll find us at the corner of Gregory and Main in Kansas City, Missouri, where our sanctuary, our office and our education and social facilities are all concentrated in a historic landmark. That makes us the only Jewish Reform congregation that offers all of its activities and services in the midtown area of Kansas City. Our congregation counts over 200 families who are dedicated to create an intimate community where everybody feels at home.

Memberships and Affiliations

The New Reform Temple is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism. The New Reform Temple considers itself true to the values of Reform Judaism.


The congregation’s size enables the member families to maintain a sense of warmth, intimacy and friendliness. The Religious School of The New Reform Temple begins with kindergarten through the 10th year of high school. The 10th grade is the confirmation class. There is a close relationship between the activities of the Religious School and the congregation in the areas of charitable and communal involvement as well as worship.

Opportunities and Activities

The Temple hosts a wide variety of religious and social events yearly. Among those are celebrations for festivals and holidays, receptions and celebrations for special events.

One of the highlights of each year is the Krasne Scholar-in-Residence program. A significant scholar is the weekend guest of the congregation for formal and informal presentations of intellectual and educational value.
