Home > About KI > Our History

KI was founded in 1970 by a small group of families who wished to create a fully participatory Jewish experience that would be rich in community and tradition, and to establish a superior religious school. In 1982, the congregation purchased and remodeled a Lansing public school building to house our growing membership. We are located in southeast Lansing, approximately two miles from Michigan State University. Our members, now numbering over one hundred twenty-five families, come from all around the greater Lansing area.
