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.

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.

Kafar consistently puts on top-notch, cutting-edge events at a nice variety of Chicagoland locations. Kafar is a great organization and I always look forward to whatever is coming up next.

Kfar is a treasure of an organization. Kfar brings a variety of hot talent to the young(er)Chicago Jewish community, while creating events that bring together a broad cross-section that community. Kudos!

KFAR consistently promotes fun events that have introduced me to wonderful music and art that I wouldn't have discovered otherwise. These events have also been a good way for me to make more friends in the Jewish community. I didn't realize I liked klezmer until Purimpalooza this year, and Mor Karbasi is now in regular rotation on my stereo thanks to KFAR's promotion of her concert.
