Kfar is the only culture and arts organization in Chicago that consistently presents edgy, interesting Jewish music and other performers. This is so important today and I highly applaud their efforts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

co-presenting Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad and in engaging with them on an organizational level.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them to be more open in engaging others in their vision.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they helped deliver a good audience, that they have expanded their offerings, and that they are getting more professional.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very passionate.

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

deliver more young people and others for Jewish music and performance.

Ways to make it better...

they were more open organizationally.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

creating real and effective partnerships.

One thing I'd also say is that...

there is a strong need for a presenter like Kfar.
