Kavana is an independent Jewish community in Seattle. We strive to create a supportive communal environment in which individuals and families can use “kavana” - intention - to create a Jewish life that is spiritually fulfilling, intellectually satisfying, fun, and meaningful.

Kavana has a unique approach to building Jewish community:

Cooperative Model - As the first Jewish cooperative of its kind, partners share in the task of creating Jewish life for the group.

Non-Denominational & Pluralistic - Kavana draws participants from highly diverse backgrounds and allows for multiple entry points to Jewish involvement.

“Personalized Judaism in a Community Context” - Kavana acknowledges and embraces the dynamic tension between an individual’s interest and needs, versus the desire to create community.

Local Pods - Kavana believes that Jewish communal life will best thrive in settings which are local, organic and intimate.
