KFAR is a visionary organization which has opened my eyes (and ears) to the richness and diversity of global Jewish music beyond anything I had imagined. Adam and his supporters are committed to great music and Jewish engagment. Each stands on its own and neither is in service to the other. Introduced me to Balkan Beat Box and the Afro-Semitic Experience.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

promote fantastic music and cross-cultural events on a broader media platform, e.g. ads in print, radio and of course, have the funds to pay musicians of high caliber what they deserve.

Kfar consistently offers programming for the Jewish community which is bold and innovative. It often stretches the old definitions of what constitutes Jewish culture. By doing so, it often engages Jews of all walks of life who might otherwise have no affiliation with their culture. Kfar events are often marked by a wonderfully mixed audience of Reform, Orthodox, Renewal and Hasidic. There are few, if any, other organizations which can draw such a mixture -- which is a testimonial for Kfar's dynamic programming.

Reach out with even more programming and PR muscle to reach even more Jews who desperately need to connect to their heritage.

Kfar gives the Chicagoland area a much needed injection of Jewish-themed culture. It also provides a much needed haven for touring artists as they try to make a stop in the Midwest worth their while. The programs are incredibly diverse, and serve well beyond their intended demographic. You see people of all creeds, races, ages and economic levels at these events. Every single event I have attended was a unique experience and has impacted my thoughts, listening patterns and overall enjoyment of my city's culture.

Over the past decade, KFAR has brought progressive Jewish bands to the Jewish mainstream..... From my experience, these concerts have brought together all streams of Judaism----IE--it's very common to see Orthodox attending concerts along with Reformed or even Renewal folks. Overall, KFAR is a great organization!

The Great!

The Hothouse. Great venue---wish it was still around!

KFAR has brought a surprising variety of Jewish music programs to the Chicago area and made them interesting and accessible to both Jews and non-Jews. For example: The recent presentation, in the (gentile Polish) Chopin Teatre, of Daniel Kahn's Berlin-style strongly social-commentary cabaret group was extremely effective; the overflow crowd experienced the real feel of intellectual/political activism intensity! Then the next KFAR show was the super-contemporary Israeli club act Soulico.
