Kol Rinah board approves logo

Kol Rinah logo


Kol Rinah has unveiled its new logo, incorporating multi-colored shofars into a Mogen David. 

The Kol Rinah board released a statement saying the logo was approved in a unanimous vote by the congregation’s board. The logo was the result of two-and-a-half months of work by the Kol Rinah Communications Committee, chaired by Paula Hamvas and Gary Kodner. 

“Many designs were created and considered,” reads a statement from the congregation. “The logo is both simple and original in its form so it could be used in a number of applications.” 

The logo’s use of the shofar echoes the congregation’s theme of “New Voice of Song.” A tagline of “Share your Voice” was created to accompany the logo.

“The spectrum of colors represents the many many voices and inclusive nature of Kol Rinah,” read the congregation’s statement. 

Kol Rinah was created by the merger of two Conservative congregations, Shaare Zedek Synagogue in University City and Brith Sholom Kneseth Israel in Richmond Heights.
